Book Details History of Bristol Yacht Club
February 8, 2012
EastBayRI.com: George M. Sylvia has been a sailor since he was a kid and has worked for the daily newspaper in Providence for many years. Now he has combined these talents in writing a 350-page book titled “Boat House on the Shore.” The “boat house” is the Bristol Yacht Club [in Bristol, Rhode Island].
The book was recently distributed to the club’s 325 members and is now on sale to the public. Not only does it trace the colorful ups and downs of the club through its 135-year existence, but it brings into play many pieces of nautical life on the bay long forgotten.
