The 1866 transatlantic yacht race was a match that saw three yachts battle their way across the Atlantic in the dead of winter in pursuit of a $90,000 prize. Six men died in the brutal and close-fought contest, and the event changed the perception of yachting from a slightly effete gentlemen's pursuit into something altogether more rugged and adventurous. The race also symbolized the beginning of America's 'gilded age', with its associated obscene wealth and largesse (the $90,000 prize put up by the three contestants is about $15 million in today's money), as well as the thawing of relations between the US and UK. The narrative focuses on the victorious yacht Henrietta and her owner James Gordon Bennett. Bennett was the son of the multimillionaire proprietor of the New York Herald, and a notorious playboy. His infamous stunts included driving his carriage through the streets of New York naked, tipping a railway porter $30,000, and turning up at his own engagement party blind drunk and mistaking the fire for a urinal, which led to the coining of the phrase 'Gordon Bennett!'. However, Bennett was also a serious yachtsman and had served with distinction during the civil war aboard Henrietta, and he was the only owner to be aboard his own boat during the race. Other characters include Bennett's captain Samuel Samuels (legendary clipper skipper, ex-convict and occasional vaudeville actor), financier Leonard Jerome, aboard Henrietta as race invigilator (he also happened to be grandfather to Winston Churchill) and Stephen Fisk, a journalist so desperate to cover the race that he evaded a summons to appear as a witness in court and instead smuggled himself aboard Henrietta in a crate of champagne. Using the framework of the race to discuss the various historical themes, there's ample drama, and the diverse and eccentric range of characters ensure that this is a book laced with plenty of human interest, scandal and adventure.

Hi there great blog! Does running a blog such as this require a
lot of work? I have no knowledge of computer programming
but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you
have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
I know this is off subject but I simply had to ask.
Many thanks!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any
issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique

I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website.
It appears as if some of the text in your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is
happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my internet browser because I've
had this happen previously. Kudos

great points altogether, you just gained
a new reader. What would you recommend about your put up that you made a few days ago?
Any sure?

I think what you composed made a bunch of sense. However, consider this, suppose you typed a catchier title?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if
you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean clasotholar - Gordon Bennett and the First Yacht Race
Across the Atlantic is a little plain. You ought to look at Yahoo's front page and see how they
create post titles to get viewers to open the links. You
might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you've got to say.
In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
