Abstract

A history of the Winter Harbor 21s, thought to be the oldest one-design sailboat fleet in the U.S. Seven of the nine-boat fleet has been sailing since 1907. Beginning in 1981, real estate tycoon Alan Goldstein discovered and purchased all the original seven boats in time for the centennial of the Winter Harbor Yacht Club in 1990. He was helped by maritime historian Maynard Bray and philanthropist Fitz Dixon, who owned the two newer boats built in the 1920s.
