Dorade, Olin Stephens, 1930
The famous Dorade, designed in 1930 by Olin Stephens when he was just twenty-two years old, has been called, “…the most prodigious small ocean racing yacht ever built.” Among many other ocean races, she won the 2,225 mile TransPac in both 1939 and 2013! Here she sails in the Castine Regatta in Maine.
Eilean, William Fife III, 1937
The lovely Marconi ketch designed by William Fife III and launched in 1937, Eilean has made 36 Atlantic crossings and was the floating set for Duran Duran’s hit song Rio. Built of Burmese teak on galvanized iron frames, she has been meticulously restored.
Marilee, Nathaniel Herreshoff, 1926
Marilee is one of the very fast Herreshoff New York 40s built in 1926, now rigged as a gaff cutter. After returning from Italy, she now sails in Maine and races in the Castine, Camden and Eggemoggin Reach Races.
Wahoo, Iain Oughtred
In the foreground is the Ness yawl, Wahoo, designed by Iain Oughtred. Wahoo was designed to be constructed by amateur builders. In the background is an Islay skiff, a traditional Scottish design. The boats are sailing on Loch Ness in Scotland during Sail Caledonia, a small boat race and cruise up the Caledonian Canal.
Elena, Nat Herreshoff, 1911 and 2009

15 Meter Class Yachts
The four William Fife designed 15 Meter class gaff cutters now restored and sailing are an unforgettable sight on Challenge Day at les Voiles de St Tropez 2016. Here Mariska, built in 1908, maintains her lead over Tuiga, built a year later.
Phoebus II, Auguste Godinet, 1903
Phoebus II from Lake Geneva, Switzerland is a replica of a lake boat designed in 1903 by Auguste Godinet. Owned by a Geneva association, she visits many regattas and sails here in the Douarnenez Festival in Brittany, France.
Castine Regatta, Maine
A tight three-way start at the Castine Regatta in Maine: the 1936 Sparkman & Stephens New York 32 Siren leads The Blue Peter, designed by Alfred Mylne in 1930 (then lengthened about ten feet for her owner in 1938), and the 1926 Herreshoff New York 40 Marilee, near the beginning of the race.
Halloween, William Fife, 1926
The lovely William Fife designed Marconi cutter, Halloween, launched in 1926, sailing in les Voiles de St Tropez regatta.
Linnet, Herreshoff New York 30
The 1905 gaff sloop Linnet is one of about ten Herreshoff New York 30s still sailing. Thirty feet marks the length of the waterline, not the length of the boat overall. Behind her is the gaff cutter Nan of Fife, designed by William Fife III in 1896. She was rediscovered after an internet search and purchased by the grandson of a former owner.
Skylark, Sparkman and Stephens, 1937
The Sparkman and Stephens Skylark, a near twin of the famous Stormy Weather, was commissioned in 1937 and built at Pendleton Yachts in Maine. Besides winning many races, she has also sailed around the world. Skylark was restored at East Passage Boatyard, Bristol RI. Here she sails in the Spetses Classic Yacht Regatta off the Greek island of Spetses.
Marga, Carl Oscar Liljegren, 1910
Marga is a 10 Meter Class yacht by the Swedish yacht designer Carl Oscar Liljegren, She was launched in 1910 from the Hastholm Boatyard near Stockholm. Marga has been beautifully restored by Technomar on the River Tiber near Rome, Italy, which marks a resurgence of interest in this once famous class.
This entertaining video documentary covers a rare voyage in a monuhull for me that confirmed my hatred of them. Nevertheless we had an EVENTFUL trip in 2010 sailing in yacht Clyde from Southampton towards Craig Irvine's destination, the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Something went wrong pretty well every day!
