Did you know that Amaryllis was the name of the world’s first racing cat? The replica of the revolutionary 33 ft catamaran AMARYLLIS designed by Nathanael G. Herreshoff in 1876 can be seen in Bristol RI at the Herreshoff Museum on May 21st. Come join the NEMA (New England Multihull Association) event and discover new friends and some cool multihulls.
Below is the schedule:
The schedule is still the same; out door boat viewing 2 – 5 PM and indoor presentations from 5 – 7 PM. The Museum closes at 5 so NEMA members and Museum staff will be the only ones allowed in the Museum after hours. The boats we expect include an Atlantic 57, Aquidneck Custom’s new 11 M Trimaran Three Little Birds, a Discovery 20 with many new updates, an F-16 Viper Catamaran, a Windrider 17 Trimaran and a Weta Trimaran. There may be an A Cat or A parts indoors to see too. Lars Guck, of Guck Inc and A cat fame, may do an indoor presentation in the evening. There should be information on the new Seacart 26 and some of the new Corsair product as well.
