Launched in 1936. Many consider Ticonderoga the crowning design achievement of L. Francis Herreshoff.
Francis Herreshoff designed the 72-foot ketch Ticonderoga to be a fast day boat for Harry Noyes and his family. But he designed her with the flowing lines below the water and breathtaking clipper-yacht aesthetics above.
Big Ti, as she was known, startled very one with her speed on all points of sail. Racing her soon took center stage. Many yachting connaisseurs consider her the most beautiful ocean racer ever built.
Since she was launched in 1936 as Tioga II, she was recorded more ocean-racing victories, especially first-overall honors, than any yacht in history.
She has been refitted as a luxurious cruising boat, but her current owner frequently races. Along with Endeavour andShamrock V, Ticonderoga is the most famous racing yacht still sailing today.

Thomas Octave Murdoch Sopwith , Shamrock V's owner ( he acquired her in 1932 ), decided to enter the fray. He ordered a new J Class from Charles E. Nicholson, Endeavour. Nicholson designed his most fabulous challenger, with a very elegant shape and real speed capacities.
The fifteenth challenge of the America's Cup was quite a paradox: the faster yacht was beaten by the slower but better sailed yacht. In fact, with Rainbow, the Americans were saved solely due to her tactical sense and a lot of luck.
Endeavour layed down for years in the USA, without care. She was rescued by Elizabeth Meyer, of Newport, RI. Today after a $ 10,000,000 restoration, she is one of the most breathtaking sights on the water. To take helm of such a boat is to experience pure power, grace and speed.
