I just picked up a copy of Sailing: A Celebration of the Sport and the Worlds Best Places to Enjoy It by Michael B. Mcphee. In the opening chapter he mentions a 1890 yacht Rahnee owned by Ansell, father of Hillary. It was apparently at this time, near as I can tell the mid to late 1960's, the oldest registered yacht in the country. The family lived in Long Island and save for a few paragraphs in this book, there is no other information on them or the vessel I've been able to find. Figured I'd ask here.
