The Boys in the Boat – The Rest of the Story

Tuesday October 17, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM

George Yeomans Pocock’s great-nephew, James Pocock, will speak about his personal memories of his great uncle, the development of the sport of rowing in America, and will tell many rich stories that are omitted in Daniel Brown’s book, The Boys in the Boat : Nine Americans and their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

Jim Pocock grew up in a family of racing shell builders that goes back four generations. His grandfather, Dick Pocock, built shells exclusively for Yale University for 40 years, and his great uncle, George Pocock, supplied every other college in America from his shop in Seattle. All together, these brothers built 21 Olympic gold medal winning boats, including every gold medal winning 8 oared shell from 1920 – 1956.

This presentation will take place in the Banquet Hall in Milford Town Hall. Please use the Middle Street entrance and take the elevator to the 3rd floor.  Sign up today!
