EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the exhilarating Yarmouth One Designs racing in 1922. The image was created by Kirk & Sons of Cowes, a renowned name in yacht design and construction during that era. The Yarmouth One Design class originated at the Solent Yacht Club in 1910 under the influence of Sir Arthur Cope, a celebrated portrait painter for the Royal Family. The boats featured in this photograph were meticulously designed by Henry Longmore, who worked at J Samuel Whites shipyard in Cowes. With their elegant gaff rigging and sleek lines, these sailing yachts epitomize both beauty and speed on water. Set against the picturesque backdrop of England's Isle of Wight, this image showcases a thrilling race moment from an early twentieth-century sporting event. The monochrome aesthetic adds to its timeless appeal. As we observe this stern view perspective, it is impossible not to be captivated by the skillful maneuvering of these sailboats as they compete against each other with great intensity. This snapshot freezes a fleeting moment filled with adrenaline and determination. Transport yourself back to the roaring twenties as you admire this remarkable piece of maritime history captured through Edgar WP Kirk's lens. It serves as a testament to both human ingenuity and our enduring fascination with competitive sailing.
