Clara

PC047.02.0360.01000 (RS145024)

Description

Clara was a composite cutter designed by William Fife Jr and built by Culzean Ship Building Company of Ayrshire, Scotland in 1884. In June 1885 she was sold to Charles Sweet who sent her to New York where she sailed her first race on Sept 18, 1885 winning her class. She subsequently won almost every race she was entered in and did much to fuel the "cutter-craze" then prevalent.

This photo was taken on the day of the annual regatta of the Eastern Yacht Club at the time of the second beat.
