Recognize this Boat

There were several pictures of this boat hanging in the hotel we stayed in this weekend at my daughters soccer tournaments...There was no captions on any of them..

I was wondering if any of you may recognize the boat?..Its spinnaker pole must have been 60' long and the boom close to it...I just cant fathom flying this much sail...what a rush!!

Great picture, which hotel were you at? I wonder how large the crew was to handle that much canvas? Looking at the bow wave, they were moving right along. Thanks.

HOLY S&&%!!!TT

Somebody's sail maker is now retired on a private island...

I'm trying to imagine the Skipper having all his terms correct as he calls sail trim to the crew. "Harden up the brace on the flying-fore-staysail-spinnaker before you loosten the snotter on the yankee-fisherman-spritsl' yard and don't tangle the sheets of the spanker and the golly-wobbler!"

Redefines the term - wing and wing. Amazing photo - but what's most amazing is that every sail appears to be catching wind.

Thumbs up Candida, by Beken of Cowes

From the web;

"J Class yachts were always on a grand scale, huge spreads of canvas on hulls of 120 feet or more, large crew numbers of up to 35, and most of all multi-millionaires able to afford them. It is this class of boat that epitomizes the peak of yachting competitiveness - racing for The America's Cup."

Correction she's Susanne.

Actually gtod, upon futher research, I believe she's Westward - a 160 foot schooner designed in 1910 by Nathanael Greene Herreshoff for Alexander Cochran (World's Richest Bachelor). The boat was actually built at Herreshoff's boatyard in Bristol, RI - barely 10 miles north of where I'm sitting.

Small world.
