Easton Library to Host Pete Lesher on Judge North’s Log Canoeing Book

On Thursday, September 13, at 6:30 p.m., the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library will host a talk by the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Pete Lesher on Judge John C. North II’s new book, “Tradition, Speed and Grace: Chesapeake Bay Sailing Log Canoes”

The thrill of log canoe racing—four to 18 people in choreographed motion, balancing the strain on the rig, calling out puffs and lifts, eyeing the competition, sailing low on the water with enough horsepower to exceed theoretical hull speed in optimum conditions—is an experience seldom equaled, and one that is explored in Judge North’s new book.

The hard-cover, 150-page book includes more than 140 color and black-and-white illustrations and photographs.  In “Tradition, Speed and Grace,” North recounts his perspective on the sport from his 70 years of log canoeing.  The book also includes individual profiles of the remaining 23 canoes in the fleet, along with a chronology of log canoe racing and line drawings of canoes from the CBMM collection.

John C. North II was born and raised in Talbot County and served as States Attorney for Talbot County, Judge of the District and Circuit Courts, and Chairman of the Chesapeake Bay Critical Area Commission.  He was one of the founders of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, became its first Vice President and later its President.  His family now owns and campaigns four Chesapeake Bay sailing log canoes, and he captains Island Bird, built in 1882 by his great-grandfather.

“This book gives the reader an on-board, intimate experience with Chesapeake Bay sailing log canoes,” said CBMM Chief Curator Pete Lesher. “Aboard the canoe, in the clubhouse, and during long tows, the Judge has recounted many wonderful stories about log canoe racing in a variety of personal settings.  Now with this book, Judge North shares his experience, his knowledge, and his passion with readers from all over the world.”

All library programs are free and open to the public.  Patrons do not need to pre-register to attend this talk.  For more information, please call the library at 410-822-1626, or visit www.tcfl.org.
