Rugosa Visiting Webb

Halsey Herreshoff ’55 brought his sailboat, Rugosa, to Webb for the weekend. Built in 1926 in Bristol, Rhode Island, this 59′ New York 40-class yawl has sailed all over the east coast, Mediterranean and Baltic Seas, and crossed the Atlantic numerous times.

The purpose of the visit is to give members of the Webb family a chance to experience a classic sailing yacht and be immersed in the history of American boat building.
