The Ticonderoga

The Ticonderoga

On a perfect summer day on Nantucket Island, a stroll to the docks presented an unexpected gift. Tethered to the dock was the most beautiful sailing yacht I’d ever seen. I remember thinking “My God!!! That’s the Ticonderoga! Hurry get the sketch book and camera!” Many consider Ticonderoga the crowning design achievement of L. Francis Herreshoff. He designed the 72-foot ketch Ticonderoga, launched in 1936, with flowing lines below the water and breathtaking clipper-yacht aesthetics above. “Big Ti ” as she is affectionately known, was originally designed as a fast day boat for Harry Noyes and his family but she surprised everyone with her speed and has recorded more ocean-racing victories, especially first-overall honors, than any yacht in history. Most yachting connoisseurs consider her the most beautiful ocean racer ever built, and I agree.
