EDITORS COMMENTS
Trivia, a 12 Metre class yacht sails close-hauled, 1939. This print captures the elegance and grace of Trivia, a remarkable sailing yacht designed by Charles Nicholson for Vernon W. MacAndrew in the late 1930s. With her sleek lines and Bermuda rigging, Trivia effortlessly cuts through the water off the coast of Cowes, Isle of Wight. The skilled craftsmanship of Kirk & Sons is evident in every detail of this magnificent vessel as she showcases her prowess on the open sea. In 1937, during her first season, Trivia achieved an impressive victory by securing first place in her class. This triumph solidified her reputation as one of the finest yachts to compete under the International Rule at that time. The photo perfectly captures Trivia's close-hauled position - sails tautly filled with wind as she navigates against it with precision and finesse. It reflects not only a moment frozen in time but also represents an era when sailing was both a sport and a symbol of opulence. As we gaze upon this monochrome masterpiece today, we are transported back to an enchanting period where passion for yachting intertwined with artistry and engineering excellence. Let this image serve as a reminder that even amidst turbulent times like those faced in the thirties, beauty can still be found on serene waters.
