Measuring 51 x 76 cms (20″ x 30″), the original, a fine marine painting commissioned by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston from Gordon Frickers

The Painting:
Designed with and for Sir Robin Knox-Johnston to celebrate the first ‘Clipper Way Round the World Race”,  and as a souvenir print for crew to purchase, this was his third ‘Gordon Frickers’ painting,

This picture is the one chosen of 2 specially produced (the other, The Clipper Way 2, is available) for the Clipper Venture / Times Clipper 2000 crews & their followers.

We see a sturdy modern Clipper Class yacht on course with the ghost of the famous tea clipper “Thermopylae”.

The 60-foot Clipper Class yachts were specially designed for this very long distance race which followed the course of the now legendary  racing clippers of the 19 th century, the race was conceived and is run by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.

The beautiful marine print is a numbered edition co signed by Gordon Frickers & Britain’s most distinguished and famous yachtsman Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.

A distinctive & unique memento of these very special races.

Also available, two remaining large, exquisite drawings pencil and charcoal, of the  Clipper Class Yachts.
