A river navigation specialist, Captain Hayman has written the Coastal Harbor Guide to the U.S., soon to be published on CD for electronic navigation. He is equally at home on China’s Yangzi River, about which he has written several works, including Yangzi River Map: from Source to Seaand Three Gorges of the Yangzi River.
Richard has been a featured presenter at the United Nations, the Explorers Club, the Society of Naval Architects, and at numerous universities. His home port is New York and the Hudson River, where he is skipper of the historic English Channel yawl Klang II, a sail ferry built in 1924.
