Back in the early days of Moth Boating in the US, there were fleets of Moths scattered quite a distance from the east coast hot beds of racing. Examples were the fleets at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Topeaka, Kansas, New Orleans, Louisiana and Shreveport, Louisiana. Occasionally a boat or two featuring that club's best sailors would make the long trip to the site of the Nationals or the World Championship. The boats featured in today's post were from the Shreveport Moth Club. I've puzzled over these images for several years and have attempted to communicate with that yacht club but have received no reply. Perhaps someone will recognize the boats and sailors in the following photographs and provide a bit of information to help preserve their history.
