Preview: Racing Dutch Sailing Barges in the 1960s

September 11, 2015

Maynard Bray

The water is shallow (looks like only about four feet, with the barges themselves drawing three), the wind strong, and the course congested. See how a dozen or so of these steel-hulled, blunt-ended working craft maneuver and compete, reefed down, in tight quarters. Don't miss seeing the sounding pole in use or the capsized barge with her crew  gathered on its high side, awaiting help. Exciting stuff, recommended by OCH Guide Walt Ansel.
