EDITORS COMMENTS
The 205 ton J-class yacht Velsheda, designed by Charles E Nicholson and built in 1933 for Woolworths founder William L Stephenson, gracefully sails close-hauled in this photo print. Captured by Arthur Henry Kirk during the breezy summer of 1933, the image showcases the sheer elegance and power of this magnificent sailing vessel. With its Bermuda rig and sleek monochrome silhouette cutting through the water, Velsheda epitomizes the golden age of yachting in England. The photograph was taken off Cowes, Isle of Wight, a renowned location for sailing races and home to Kirk & Sons boatyard where Velsheda was constructed. The skillful craftsmanship of Charles Ernest Nicholson is evident as Velsheda effortlessly maneuvers against the wind with her lee bow slicing through the waves. This breathtaking display demonstrates both her exceptional speed capabilities and impeccable design. As a symbol of wealth and luxury during the thirties, yachting was not only a sport but also an expression of status among high society. The presence of William Lawrence Stephenson as owner further enhances Velsheda's prestige. This stunning print captures a moment frozen in time; it transports us back to an era when sailboats ruled supreme on open waters. Whether you are an avid sailor or simply appreciate timeless beauty, this remarkable image will surely evoke feelings of admiration for both artistry and maritime history.
