Hein Driehuyzen Sailboat Visits Block Island
June 11, 2013
Block Island Times: Glide, a 41’ Scepter, and hull number one of that size, stopped at the Great Salt Pond on Memorial Day weekend. This iconic blue water yacht, built in 1982 in British Columbia, was designed by Canadian Hein Driehuyzen and featured in the book “The World’s Best Sailboats,” by sailor and photographer Ferenc Mate.
Currently owned by Denis Moonan and Pam MacBrayne, Glide now hails from Camden, Maine. The current owners are intrepid blue water, or true ocean, sailors who spent last winter cruising near Panama and the Bahamas, before pointing Glide’s bow for points north. In Panama, Noonan reports that a favorite anchorage is among the islands inhabited by Native Americans near the coastline.
