  • FYI…the 210 class was not begun until the mid 40′s so the boats pictured here in a 1932 photo are probably Triangle Class Sloops…the Triangles were designed by John Alden in the 20′s, and the 210 class was designed by C. Raymond Hunt…

  • That was before the Eastern Pt. Yacht Club moved down to the end of the point by the lighthouse. At the time of the picture, the yacht club was where the home is now on the point at the north end of Niles beach.

  • I meant to add above that I believe Toby is right, the larger sailboats are Triangle class but the smaller were Cape Cod Knockabouts.
