Between the 1870s & 1950s, men from the shores of Loch Broom, found a working life in the wealthy world of big yacht racing. Owners from some of Britain’s richest families employed men from this area because of their excellent seamanship skills. Each man was issued a jumper with the name of the yacht on it which almost became a sort of CV as a record of the yachts that the men had served on.
