Noted: Bad Starts
The launch of Ticonderoga didn't go as planned.
Built in 1936 in Quincy, MA, some thought she was destined to bring bad omens after her troubled launch, which threw three from her deck. But Ticonderoga still sails today, this week at the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta. Sometimes a troubled start is just that.
