Friendship Sloop Newsletter Articles

“The purpose of this Society shall be to encourage the building and sailing of Friendship Sloops, to provide a medium for owners and friends to meet and enjoy each other around a common interest, and to promote the history and traditions of the Friendship Sloop”

Article II, Section A, of the Constitution of the Friendship Sloop Society

The purpose of this page is to provide access for new members of the Friendship Sloop Society and interested non-members of the Society to past articles that I have written for FRIENDSHIPS, the Newsletter of the Friendship Sloop Society.
               All the articles below first appeared in FRIENDSHIPS and are reprinted here, with the permission of the editor, in the spirit of “promoting the history and traditions of the Friendship Sloop”.
