Classic Head Turner in Any Port!

Summer Delights – on the Cape

Escape overnight, for a week or merely a delightful afternoon excursion!

Three Distinctive Classic Yachts

An Eight-five foot Fantail, lovely classic motor yacht with a huge aft deck for entertaining. A first class example of the Mathis/Trumpy “houseboats” that were very popular from the twenties through the fifties. Cruise for a full day or an overnight and enjoy a family outing in graceful classic style. Rates include catering and beverages, fuel, dockage, crew gratuity.

New England Tall Ship Sailing in the best harbors; the best cruising New England has to offer including the beautiful islands of Newport, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Sail with us this summer and find out why this is one of Americas best Tall Ship sailing cruises.

Head  out for an exhilarating sail to Nantucket, a beautiful island 30 miles out to sea and what was once the world’s center of the whaling industry and inspiration for Melville’s novel Moby Dick. Take a side trip on her launch to a pristine secluded beach or explore on one of our kayaks.

Head turner in any port!

A sleek and graceful wooden cruising yawl, built to exacting standards in 1950 by the world-renowned Abeking and Rasmussen Yacht Yard. This rare classic has been lovingly maintained by the same family for more than 35 years.

Upon boarding, notice her beautiful teak decks, large comfortable cockpit and varnished spruce masts. Her interior is stunning mahogany complete with a full galley. Be transported back to the warmth and romance of another era.

More than just beautiful, she is a superb performer. She has a proud history of racing victories including the coveted Marblehead-Halifax Trophy, along with many other New England honors including two-time winner of the Nantucket Opera House Cup.

Royal Russia – Za Vas!

A darling friend sent me this link, the subject was hats, which I wear and collect. Intrigued by the photo, he then sent me a fascinating link to Royal Russian News…take a peek at this site:

What better way to ward off the current spring chill than sipping vodka and nibbling caviar blini?

I love the vintage photos and the interesting history; reporting on all that is Russian, including the current situation of the burial process of the children of Nikolai II, the last Tsar of Russia. Royalty is an unfamiliar aspect of American life or politics; spellbound Brits are awaiting the upcoming Royal wedding and in Russia, the Kremlin will decide where the remains of Grand Duchess Maria and Tsaryevicj Alexi will finally reside – the children died at the hands of the Bolsheviks in 1918.

Of course, this is merely a small piece of  history reported in the Royal Russian News – there are posts describing upcoming Imperial Home tours, Faberge exhibitions, a wonderful resource for touring in Russia, should you need an excuse for an authentic Royal Tsar Caviar and Vodka Tasting Tour.

My viewing of Dr. Zhivago eight times, borders on obsession; perhaps it was Omar Sharif and Julie Christie who were so mesmerizing,  I will never forget the enchanting images of the “ice-palace” at Varykino.
