DESCRIPTION SITE :

This magnificent signed limited edition print faithfully reproduced from the original oil painting depicts the J Class Yachts Endeavour, Shamrock V and Velsheda, along with Cambria manoeuvring for the start on Tuesday 21st August 2001, during the America's Cup Jubilee celebrations.
While Shamrock V and Cambria power up the shoreline with one minute to go, Velsheda, ahead and to leeward of Endeavour, tacks for the line. The two yachts are 100ft apart as Velsheda squeezes up. Endeavour's helmsman responds to the bowman's frantic signal to swing the bow up. It is essential for Endeavour that she stays to windward of Velsheda. All is surreally quiet as the two giants pass within inches of each other.
