An important historical enameled silver plaque commemorating sailing achievements earned by the master American sailor and designer Roderick Stephens, Jr. (1909-1995). Mr. Stephens was a renowned yachtsman of the twentieth century. Born in New York City in 1909 Stephens began his sailing career off Cape Cod in 1919. In 1933 he joined the yacht design firm of Sparkman and Stephens which had been co-founded by his brother Olin Stephens, II and Drake Sparkman. As a member of the firm Roderick Stephens oversaw domestic and foreign construction of all Sparkman and Stephens boats, and later became president. During World War II, he played a major role in the design of the DUKW, an amphibious Army vehicle that subsequently earned Mr. Stephens a United States Medal of Freedom.
While renowned for his designs and sailing expertise, Roderick Stephens is well remembered for his knowledge of all things regarding sailing, from knots and rigging to maximizing sail angles to get the most out of a breeze.
