Sailing in the American Experience: Stories, literature, art, history, music and film

America was shaped by explorers racing to get here, men-of-war racing to Her defense, clipper ships racing their products to port, waterman racing their catch to market, and modern racing competitors representing the USA. Sailing is inextricably linked to American culture — in its art, literature, history, music and film.
