Cotton Blossom II  is a Q Class sloop built in 1925, designed by Johan Anker

 

HISTORY

"Cotton Blossom II" is a Q Class sloop built in 1925. She was recently completely rebuilt by Dennis Conner.

"Cotton Blossom II" was originally designed by Johan Anker (1871-1940) under the Universal Class rule. She was built in 1925 at the Anker & Jensen shipyard in Asker Norway, not far from Oslo. She was shipped as deck cargo to Halifax. In order to avoid heavy import duties, she was sailed from Halifax to her first home port in Marblehead, MA. Originally built as "Leonore" for Robert Amory, she was one of two Anker & Jensen Q-boats delivered to Marblehead that year, the other being "Sally XIII" for Lawrence Percival.

Johan Anker built his first boat in 1889. He formed a partnership with Christian Jensen in 1905. The Anker & Jensen yard built boats from dinghies to schooners including Six, Eight and Twelve meter racing yachts. Anker chaired the Scandinavian Yacht Racing Union. His best known design is the Dragon class, which came out in 1928.

The Q class was introduced in 1904, Arestes being the first built under this rule. Some twenty Qs were built, attracting such designers as John Alden, L. Francis Herreshoff, Frederick Hoyt, Frank Paine and Johan Anker. The last Q boat built was "Questa", a Herreshoff design built in 1929 by Graves. 1929 also turned out to be the peak year for Q boats in Marblehead with 14 boats competing. ("Questa", Q-14, is now sailing on Flathead Lake, MT with another Herreshoff Q, "Nor'easter V", Q-12, built in 1928. See WoodenBoat #170.)

Packing term: Model is packed with mast fold flat down to minimize the shipping cost.
