National Sailing Hall of Fame Hosts

WHEN AND IF

When And If

WHEN AND IF
“When the next war is over, and if I live though it, Bea and I are going to sail her around the world.” So said George S. Patton about the 63-foot Alden schooner he and his wife had commissioned in 1939. Built by FF Pendleton in Wiscasset, Maine, WHEN AND IF , as she was named, incorporated improvements for comfort and safety on the high seas.

General Patton’s dream was not to be. He was killed in an automobile accident in Europe shortly after the war ended.

The National Sailing Hall of Fame will host WHEN AND IF at the DNR/Hall of Fame dock and Susan B. Campbell Park in Annapolis. The boat is arriving today, October 23 and will remain through Sunday, November 2.
