The Story Behind "The Port Noonan Yacht Club" Collection

Presented herein is a collection of apparel and accessories inspired by Ted’s brief but unforgettable dalliances in Nantucket.

The Port Noonan Yacht Club served as Ted’s operations post and primary watering hole during his short-lived tenure as director of the ’68 Elihu Smails Regatta. Ted resigned with authority and honor after a sternly worded altercation with the regatta’s founder following an impromptu officer’s party he and Al Czervik of Yonkers, New York threw on the eve of the race that by all accounts was unforgettable more for its unabashed debauchery as its introduction of livestock aboard the Yacht Club’s flagship "THE FLYING WASP".
