2022 was an amazing year of racing for SWD designed boats. 90-foot BEQUIA took the class B title at the Safe Harbor Race Weekend in Newport, NH and won three 1st-place finishes out of three races at the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta in the Spirit of Tradition division.
Refit 76-foot ZEMPHIRA (previously Goshawk) also had an impressive year sweeping Class A with three wins at the Safe Harbor Race Weekend in Newport, NH.

About Tyler Fields
My love for boats started before I could tie my own shoes. My father and I would spend endless hours walking the docks of fishing towns up and down the coasts of Oregon and Washington. We would stop and watch boats slip past the buoys and slowly out of sight. Once the calm of the harbor returned, we would continue down the dock until another boat caught our attention. More often than not, a quick question asked of a deckhand would lead me into the wheel house and, if even for a moment, the chance to feel like ship’s crew.
Over the last decade, my love and passion for boats has led me from rivers to oceans and from kayaks to the decks of a tall ship. Tyler Fields Photography is my attempt to share those memories and experiences. Through photography, I want to take you to the end of the dock, onto the deck of a trawler, and behind the wheel in a rolling pilot house.
