America 1851

America 1851

Thomas Octave Murdoch Sopwith , Shamrock V's owner ( he acquired her in 1932 ), decided to enter the fray. He ordered a new J Class from Charles E. Nicholson, Endeavour. Nicholson designed his most fabulous challenger, with a very elegant shape and real speed capacities.

The fifteenth challenge of the America's Cup was quite a paradox: the faster yacht was beaten by the slower but better sailed yacht. In fact, with Rainbow, the Americans were saved solely due to her tactical sense and a lot of luck.

Endeavour layed down for years in the USA, without care. She was rescued by Elizabeth Meyer, of Newport, RI. Today after a $ 10,000,000 restoration, she is one of the most breathtaking sights on the water. To take helm of such a boat is to experience pure power, grace and speed.
