Women on Valentine’s day – Another copy of ‘Ice Maiden‘ has sold, one of the last available, showing the record breaking yacht ‘Maiden’ with her all women crew in the Southern Ocean.

The renowned yacht ‘Maiden’ is the subject of a high quality print ordered with a remarque and framed for Mr. JS of Canterbury who wrote “now keen as mustard, space ready and waiting on wall” then upon arrival of the marine print “Print has arrived and looks fantastic, thank you“.
