    Re: NY 30 “Anemone II” awaiting restoration at Herreschoff Museum

    This yacht was later named “Blue Moon” and was the first yacht of the Youngstown Yacht Club on the Niagara River in Youngstown, N.Y. (Lake Ontario). She was brought to Youngstown by a syndicate of Buffalo, N.Y. sailors on July 2nd. 1931 and that was the founding date of the Youngstown Yacht Club. The club continues to thrive today and its Race Committee boat is proudly named “Blue Moon”.

    The below quotation is from the club’s history on its web site:

    “The tradition of yacht racing and cruising has been in the hearts and souls of Youngstown Yacht Club sailors since its inception. The Club’s first yacht was the Blue Moon, a New York 30 sloop which dropped anchor off the Club dock on July 2, 1931. The nine-man syndicate from Buffalo that brought her to Youngstown joined a small group of promising local sailing enthusiasts and formed the Youngstown Yacht Club”.
