5x4 Kodak safety negative photographed by Rosenfeld and Sons in 1967. Port beam view of the 12 meter sloop INTREPID, sail #US 22, undersail with her spinnaker set. INTREPID was a US America's Cup defender in 1967. She was designed by Olin Stephens and had a new design added by Dick Carter of Boston who added a flap on the trailing edge of a shortened keel for stability. Her backers were: William Strawbridge (manager), Harold S. Vanderbilt, Patrick E. Haggerty, Burr Bartram. Crew: Rod and Olin Stephens and others for a total of 16. Mosbacher and Romagna designed the ship layout so that the crew was evenly distributed overall and most of the winches were below decks. Stamped on neg. sleeve: "183427F". Handwritten: "12/22 INTREPID". CREDIT LINE: Mystic Seaport, Rosenfeld Collection.
