Join us as we hear Lloyd Bergeson and Sonny Hodgdon discuss the America’s Cup half model collection at HMM and the Hodgdon-Herreshoff connection. This remarkable collection represents every Defender, Candidate and Challenger from 1851 through the end of the J-Class era, all carved by Hodgdon to the same scale. As of June 2021, museum is in the process of installing the America’s Cup Hodgdon Collection in a new exhibit in the A. Sidney Herreshoff Room on the ground floor, including new interpretation and Candidates not previously displayed.
