Dick Carter: Yacht Designer in the Golden Age of Offshore Racing
The Falmouth Public Library is pleased to present a local author talk, Dick Carter: Yacht Designer in the Golden Age of Offshore Racing. Dick Carter will talk about his surprising career in yacht design and show slides from his entertaining and inspiring new memoir. Copies of the book will be for sale. This program is free and registration is not required.

In the introduction to the book, John Rousmaniere writes, “When he came out of nowhere in 1965, "The New York Times" called Dick the ‘mystery man in American yachting.’ A young business man and Yale graduate from inland New Hampshire who first sailed on a small lake, he transformed himself through a spectacular act of will into a brilliant, daring yacht racer and designer. He changed his sport, creating new types of boats and winning big races while surviving daring voyages.” All of Carter’s early sailing was in Buzzard’s Bay.

Carter has given his talk and slide show at the Royal Western Yacht Club in Plymouth, England and the Royal Ocean Racing Club in London, as well as at the New York Yacht Club in Newport, Rhode Island.
