This month’s issue of Soundings features Hy Peskin photography on the cover as part of a story by Mary South documenting the historic connection between the Kennedys and the sea! Also featured is an excerpt from James Graham’s new book, Victura: The Kennedys, a Sailboat, and the Sea. In his book, James tells the tale of the Kennedy family saga and their relationship with the family sloop, Victura – How through trials and tribulations, the Kennedy family always returned to their favorite past-time as a source of character, bonding, and wisdom.
Hy joined the Kennedys on that historic July 4th weekend in Hyannisport in 1953 and witnessed first hand how the family came together around a common love for sailing and the sea! His photos captured their innocence and the serenity that Victura brought them and started an American fascination with the nation’s ‘Royal’ family. You can find the photos featured in Soundings and Victura: The Kennedys, a Sailboat, and the Sea as well as more Hy Peskin photos from that weekend here. Be sure to pick up a copy of the July issue of Soundings for a good read and a look into history!
