I’ve recently painted a second version of this scene, ‘Schooner Race’, to be the centre piece of the new house of a gentleman in the USA. He is another descendant.

Commissioned by a descendant of the families involved has now passed to the gentleman’s son and is likely, we hope not for many years yet, to pass to his grandson.
The painting’s highly original composition was carefully researched including from family archives and National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London.
“Rhoda Mary” and “Katie Cluett” were considered the “Cutty Sark” and “Thermopylae” of the coast trade, crack ships & very smart.
The great, late authority Basil Greenhill mentions them several times in his books about British schooners.
The little sloop “Mary” was another family built vessel designed to work locally, completes our composition; Mary was also noted for her speed.
