Addison Beecher Colvin ("Cal") Whipple (b. July 15, 1918, Glen Falls, New York – d. March 17, 2013, Greenwich, Connecticut).

"A.B.C. Whipple ... brings the history to life by telling the story of Robert Waterman, the preeminent clipper ship captain who, on the eve of his retirement, took up one final challenge to race the Flying Cloud around Cape Horn in the Challenge, a ship rigged to his own specifications and representing the best of nautical technology. The voyage ended in disaster, heralded the close of an era, and became the focus of debate for over a century." - from the dj.
