Storyline

Here the yachts are both sailing under a twenty-knot breeze, and the effect is most beautiful as they turn the stake, the Shamrock leading by one-eight of a mile. The sailors working at the ropes make a most beautiful effect as the yachts pull about for home and begin the great struggle which ended in the awarding of the cup to Columbia.

Holding the Auld Mug
27 September 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

It's the America's Cup Race between the yacht backed by the New York Yacht Club and Sir Thomas Lipton's (no relation, alas) latest challenger; like all challenges until the Australians took it in 1983. The leading ship sails majestically from right to left, leaving only buoys in the water, then the second vessel comes onscreen and makes a tight turn.

I have no idea which is the 'Columbia' and which the 'Shamrock II'. However, both boats are yar compared to the sort of vessel I see around New York these days.
