Photo Credits

We are grateful to everyone who is sharing their photographs of Yankee One Design sailboats.

The Yankee One Design class has been fortunate in its photographers, and we are especially grateful for the use of the following photo collections:

Elizabeth Becker (in the baseball cap) is a maritime photographer in Port Townsend, Washington who is especially fond of wooden boats and tall ships. You can pick out Elizabeth’s photographs, as they always show Yankees in a beautiful light.

Over the years, Elizabeth has photographed Y21 SIROCCO and Y40 TARFON at Port Townsend regattas — in all kinds of weather.  She photographed Y43 GEMINI throughout two years of construction at The NW School of Boatbuilding, and then spent a day on the water, photographing GEMINI’s maiden sail.

To see more of Elizabeth’s photos, visit SeaportPhotography.com

The family of John Linderman has graceously scanned and shared the photo albums of this renowned boat builder. The Linderman Collection documents the construction, launchings, and early years of sailing Y36 VENTURE, Y40 TARFUN, and Y42 FLOTSAM.

These black and white photographs capture the stark grace of the Yankees. As a boatbuilder and as an artist, John Linderman knew how to find the lines of a boat with his camera.

You may have noticed: John Linderman built and photographed Y40 TARFUN, but by the time Elizabeth Becker photographed the boat, it had been renamed Y40 TARFON.
