Sailors from the yacht "Jeano"

A photograph of two sailors with jumpers bearing the legend "Jeano RFYC". RFYC stands for the Royal Forth Yacht Club. The men were from the Loch Broom area and helped crew the yacht during the summer seasons.

The yacht was built in 1910 by Alexander Robertson & Sons Ltd on the River Clyde to a design by the legendary naval architect Alfred Mylne. She was originally named Tritonia. She eventually ended up in Brazil as a training yacht with the Brazilian navy in 1978 under the name Cisne Branco.

It was quite common for the owners of racing yachts to bring them to the Western Highlands during the summer months and hire local men to crew on them.
