The Royal Yacht Britannia was when launched revolutionary and controversial.
A story for my forthcoming book?
Later converted to a ‘J Class’, she actually had 7 changes of rig, I’ve shown here as she originally appeared.
She won over 200 races, still a record.
I have just two prints of this painting left unsold.
When I first painted ‘R Y Britannia‘ I carried out considerable research.
That activity took me to Cowes on the Isle of Wight where I had a very interesting, at least to me and possibly you, conversation with the famous marine photographers Mr. Beken 2 and 3 at their shop in West Cowes.
