These delicate and detailed watercolours appear to depict HMY Britannia. She was a gaff-rigged cutter built for Commodore Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, who later became King Edward VII. She served both himself and his son King George V, with a long racing career. Brittania was designed by George Lennox Watson as his design number 270. She was a near sister ship to the Watson-designed Valkyrie II which challenged for the America’s Cup in 1893. Launched on 20 April that year, a week ahead of Valkyrie II and joined a fleet of first class cutters that was growing fast as others followed the royal lead. In a highly competitive fleet, Britannia soon set about achieving the race results which would eventually establish her as the most successful racing yacht of all time.
No significant issues.
