Storyline

"Of all the pictures taken for the Biograph and Mutoscope, of the International Yacht Races between the 'Columbia' and the 'Shamrock,' this is one of the most impressive. It shows the yachts with balloon jibs and club topsails set, running at full speed toward the camera under a spanking breeze, as they cross the line for the last race. The picture is very sharp and clear." Written by AMB Picture Catalogue (1902)
