The Original Cover of “Beautiful Swimmers”

William W. Warner, the poet-laureate of the Chesapeake Bay, died in 2008  at age 88. In his classic book, “Beautiful Swimmers,” he described the bay better than anyone else in print.

 This appreciation in SailingBeat takes a look at Warner’s legacy and why his passing was such a loss for the Chesapeake.
