AMERICA SALUTES THE ROYAL FAMILY
The painting shows the Yacht America saluting the Royal Yacht Victoria & Albert on nearing the Needles during the 1851 America Cup. The Queen and her family were most gratified by this, although they were dissappointed that there was no British yacht near enough to put up any contest, the Queen was most pleased the Americans lowered their flag and waved their caps at her. Limited Edition lithographs printed in Paris on heavy watercolour stock, in a minimum of 20 colours, with exceptional luminosity.
AMERICA, ARROW, FREAK & ALARM
At the Nab Light, America took the lead and the British yachts never recovered, America is in the distance on the right hand side

BLACK MAGIC VS YOUNG AMERICA
NEW ZEALAND TRIUMPHS - In 1995 Black Magic impressively defeated Dennis Connor's boat to take the "Auld Mug" away from the Americans. The secret weapon that allowed them to achieve such a famous victory was, according to the Kiwis, simply teamwork
IL MORO VS AMERICA 3
A Limited Edition with the additinal signatures of the Skipper Bill Koch and the Helmsman Buddy Melges. America3 heads downwind for the last time, on her way to a 4-1 victory against Il Moro (Italy), off San Diego, May 16th, 1992
PURITAN AND GENESTA
1885 - Sir Richard Sutton refused to accept a sailover in the first race, but his magnanimity was sadly rewarded by defeat
STARS & STRIPES VS NEW ZEALAND
1988 Stars and Stripes defeats New Zealand - David Barnes and his 32 strong crew were frustrated in their attempt to wrest the cup from America by a 2-0 defeat. The outcome of Michael Fay's challenge would have been very different had the two boats not been so unfairly mis-matched.
THE BIG RACING CUTTERS
In 1903 Shamrock III was to be Sir Thomas Lipton's 3rd challenge for the Cup in 5 years. She was an unworthy antagonist for Reliance, the defender, which was the most impressive of all yachts ever to sail in the America's Cup Races.
THE J CLASS
Charles Nicholson designed Endeavour II for Sir Thom. Sopwith. She was beautiful and very fast. Unfortunately for him, W. Starling Burgess and Olin Stephens had designed Ranger a better boat, for "Mike" Vanderbilt, which was to become known as the 'Ultimate J'. She won every race in the series. In the 37 races of her one and only season, she lost only 2.
THE SCHOONER
On 22.8.1851, the yacht America outsailed the whole British fleet in a race around the Isle of Wight. The nearest British yacht to her, Aurora, finished 8 minutes after the America. The 100 Guinea Cup she won was renamed in her honour "The America Cup".
THE TWELVE METERS
In the 1986/7 races for the America's Cup, Dennis Conner made the most brilliant comeback imaginable, defeating all in his quest for the Cup. The scene is during race 2, with the wind 195deg (22/26 knots), Stars & Stripes has dropped her spinnaker early to lead Kookaburra around the mark
.
VIGILANT AND VALKYRIE II
Vigilant and Valkyrie II first met on 8.10.1893 to do battle off Sandy Hook. Vigilant gained the upper hand during the bitter contest and went on to keep the cup in America
THREE CHEERS FOR AMERICA
In Sandown Bay, America, well ahead of the fleet receives three cheers from her fellow countrymen watching the race from their vessel.
VOLUNTEER AND THISTLE
1887 - Despite their determined efforts, the bonnie Scots were soundly beaten by the American's steel sloop.
