Sailing and wooden boat construction photos

We have 78 years of great photos — sailing, racing, and building Yankees.

Where are They Now?

41 Yankees were built between 1937 and 2010.

Most are gone now, though a handful are still sailing, and maybe one or two are in barns, awaiting discovery.

Some Yankees have fascinating stories, while others just vanished.

15 are currently know to exist, worldwide.
