"Edgar WP: A Glimpse into the Majestic World of Yachts and Sailboats" Step back in time and immerse yourself in the captivating world of Edgar WP, a collection that showcases some of history's most remarkable yachts and sailboats. From the elegant J-class yacht Velsheda gracefully sailing close hauled in 1933 to the steam yacht Boadicea majestically at anchor, created by Kirk & Sons of Cowes, each image tells a story of opulence and adventure. Intrigue awaits as Cremona crashes through a powerful wave in 1913, also crafted by Kirk & Sons of Cowes. The steam yacht Joyeuse from 1914 exudes timeless beauty while La Toquade, a motor yacht anchored in 1939, emanates an air of sophistication. Witness the thrill of competition as White Heather and Shamrock race downwind with fierce determination. Shamrock IV takes center stage as an America's Cup challenger without its topsail in 1914 – a testament to both innovation and resilience. Yet not all tales are filled with triumph; tragedy strikes when RMS Olympic collides with HMS Hawke in the Solent, leaving behind a haunting image of a torn hull. However, amidst adversity lies resilience – exemplified by Surf, another stunning steam yacht at anchor from 1912. The allure continues with Sapphire under way – this magnificent 142-ton steam yacht from 1920 is sure to leave you awestruck. And finally, La Cigale sails close-hauled as an auxiliary schooner crafted by none other than Kirk & Sons of Cowes themselves. Completing this extraordinary collection is Lisette - a breathtaking schooner weighing just over 76 tons. Join us on this visual journey through time where Edgar WP captures moments that transcend mere photographs; they encapsulate dreams realized upon vast blue horizons.
