On July 11, 1932, crowds gathered in Port Jefferson to watch New York State Governor and Democratic Presidential nominee Franklin D. Roosevelt cast off on the yawl MYTH II to head on a vacation cruise with his sons, according to village historian Ken Brady.
Brady says that Roosevelt's first stop on his New England vacation sail was Morris Cove at New Haven, Connecticut. He ended his cruise in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire.
