I will speak and show slides of many of my sailboat design on the evening of Tuesday April 26 in Newport, RI at the IYRS. This talk will illustrate many of the traditional sailboats of my design. I spent my life designing yachts because as a child I lived on Jamestown, right across Narragansett Bay from IYRS, and saw fleets of beautiful, Herreshoff-built yachts every weekend in the East Passage. Paine designs continue to hold the high ground of custom quality yachts- come and learn why they are such highly valued designs. I will answer any questions you may have, show you slides of some of the most beautiful yachts ever built, and give you some hints of my upcoming enterprises “once the economy recovers”.  I will of course have a few copies of my lavish new book on yacht design available for purchase.
