The Name, The Story

 

Yachtsman James W. Crawford, Jr., had already circumnavigated by way of the Cape of Good Hope in his 72-foot wooden Alden schooner Dirigo II when he conceived Angantyr and commissioned MacLear and Harris to design her. Angantyr was not designed for racing, although she is fast and has won races. Rather she was designed for Crawford and his family to live aboard comfortably while cruising. 

 She is named for an ancient Norse king who ruled the Orkney Islands about the time King Arthur sat at the Round Table. King Angantyr is also mentioned favorably in the Icelandic sagas for his hospitality:

None ever came to the great hall without a warm welcome and food for the belly.

Abeking and Rasmussen of Lemwerder, Germany, world-renowned since 1907 as a builder of custom yachts and of German naval ships, built Angantyr in 1963-1964. According to Crawford, when Abeking and Rasmussen engineers first saw the plans for Angantyr, they declared she was not just another custom yacht, but would be built as strong as a battleship. 

Crawford had experienced a few knockdowns in his blue-water sailing career and as a result he had Angantyr designed and built to withstand a severe grounding without significant damage and to go anywhere where there was at least six feet of water and less than six inches of ice. 

 Two famous cutters of my acquaintance used for single-handing are Frank Caspers Elsieand James Crawfords Angantyr. The latter is over 60 feet long, displaces 35 tons, and carries 1,647 square feet of sail, and she demonstrates how handy the cutter rig can be even for such a large, heavy vessel. Crawford sailed his boat solo across the Atlantic, and he occasionally managed her alone with apparent ease on crowded inland waters. I once saw Angantyr with only one man aboard beat to windward under full sail through a small, crowded anchorage during a popular regatta, she seemed to weave her way through the anchored fleet of yachts and come about between them with no trouble at all. Of course, such boat handling is as much due to the skill and experience of the skipper as it is to the qualities of the vessel, her rig, her gear.

 Crawford was awarded the Blue Water Medal by the Cruising Club of America in 1974 for his single-handed transatlantic crossing in 1970 from Madeira to Antiqua in 19 days aboard Angantyr

This is the highest honor bestowed on the worlds cruising sailors for their accomplishments in ocean passagemaking. This medal has been awarded annually since 1923 to small boat crews who, through outstanding seamanship, have exemplified the goals of the club.The recipient is selected from all amateur yachtsmen of the world.

Blue Water Medal 1974

 How wonderfully the ship behaved! Kindly motion. easy to handle, and surprisingly fast, considering that she is surely the strongest vessel of her size afloat. She balanced like a dreamthe twin centerboards giving the hoped-for control of lateral plane. Close-reaching at nine knots, we could stroll away from the wheel for 20 minutes at a time. The balanced rudder gave her one-spoke control.

On deck it was cold, but below, the children played in the cozy warmth while the geraniums nodded beside the Madagascar jasmine in the skylight.

With over a ton of fresh water in the double-bottom tanks we took hot baths with luxurious abandon and savory meals came from the gleaming galley with satisfying frequency.
