On The Bay
The Model Room of the New York YC is the kind of room that you don't easily forget, a room that captures your breath as you enter, and forces you to guard against an impulse to charge around the room like an awestruck child looking not only at the splendid boat models but the spectacular architecture. So it's hard to imagine that this room, steeped in years of nautical history, could get even better, but that is exactly what happened last Friday, Feb. 25, when the Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year awards brought together some of the top American sailors in the nation. It seems fitting that this very American event is held in a room that celebrates the NYYC and America's 132-year domination of sailing's historic America's Cup.
