Start of a race off Newport

PC047.02.0720.01921 (RS145195)

Description

Described in W. H. Bunting's "Steamers, Schooners, Cutters, and Sloops" (1974): "Big sloops and schooners of the New York and Eastern Yacht Clubs in a discouraging race. The white sloop, left of center, with the prominent spinnaker, looks to be the Burgess Cup defender Puritan; the dark schooner at the right is unmistakably the old schooner Dauntless. The big sloop far in the lead appears to be the Volunteer, Burgess' last defender, which had caught a lucky slant soon after the start" (pg. 73).
