Location: History Museum

The NM or Northern Michigan sloop is perhaps the best known of the racing sailboats on Little Traverse Bay. The original fleet of eighteen boats was designed and built by Russell J. Pouliot in the early 1930s for yachtsmen in Charlevoix and Harbor Springs. Learn more about the history and building of these unique boats from Dick Babcock, who was involved in the construction of a dozen new NMs in the 1960s, ‘70s, and ‘80s.

This talk takes place at the Harbor Springs History Museum and includes coffee and cookies. Registration is required.
