Westward, Britannia and Velsheda off Ryde Middle 1935

Oil on Panel 8.5x15 Available

This small painting shows the great Herreshoff schooner Westward and the Kings Britannia with her Bermudan rig racing the J class Yacht Velsheda in 1935.

Oil on Panel 8.5x15

Last year saw the historic return of 4 J class yachts to the Solent. In this painting I show Velsheda as she runs up the Solent followed by Lionheart, Rainbow and Ranger. This painting was done as an exercise in crew detail.

Mariette Off St Catherines Isle of Wight 2008

Oil on Panel 8.5x15 Available.

The Beautiful 1915 Herreshoff schooner Mariette has made a few visits to the solent over the years. I was very lucky to be off St Catherines as she rounded during the Cowes classic round Island race in 2008.
