History of the Lord Jeff
Abe Glazer gave the Lord Jeff "her" name.
In the haberdashery business,
Abe cut a dashing figure and was given the nickname
"Lord Jeff" by at least one customer. So
looking the clean lines of this Galaxy sloop, designed by
Bill Tripp, it is not surprising that he saw fit to bestow
his own nickname on his new boat, when he bought it from
Bill McCallister in 1967.
Abe Glazer liked a relaxing sail (paper and pipe),
so he was always happy to let others
do the "hard work" of sailing! Thus the
Williams Family spent many a hot Summer day in good company
aboard the Lord Jeff, enjoying the clean waters and cooling
breezes of Oyster Bay and Long Island Sound.
Today, Jack Williams still
cultivates the fine tradition of the "relaxing
sail" and does not hesitate to put his crew to work,
hoisting sails and cranking the winches, while discussing
local lore and politics! If this is your kind of work,
then we hope to see you soon at the dock!
