- The Rainbow Fleet was the name given to the brightly colored group of catboats rounding Nantucket's Brant Point in a famous 1930 postcard by Nantucket's own H. Marshall Gardiner.
- The boats perfect spacing in the image was due to the fact that they were actually being towed to a starting line. The distinctive colors were actually an idea to help parents better follow the boat their child was in.
- None of these facts were to get in the way of how the image became symbolic of the color and beauty of Nantucket's sailing heritage translated into a more modern and memorable legacy.
