The Sparkman & Stephens yachts Dorade and Sonny are shown in a good breeze, broad-reaching under spinnaker and scudding clouds, past the light at Castle Hill and out of Narragansett Bay.

Built-in 1930 and 1935 respectively, the yachts could be sailing in the period, but their asymmetrical spinnakers tell us it's a current event, confirmed by the Feadship Krisujen approaching in the distance.

Both yachts survived not only the depression but World War Two. Their longevity is a testimony to their designer, Olin Stephens, and his brother Rod who oversaw the project, their builders, and especially their owners, who have lovingly cared for these classic beauties.

Today it's not unusual to see the two yachts with similar hulls just over fifty-two feet, but very different rigs, jousting in the waters off Newport where they have summered for several years, actively competing in numerous yachting events and berthed with other classics at the docks of the International Yacht Restoration School.

Signed and numbered limited edition print.
