Late 19th & Early 20th Century British Yachting

Research Projects

My interest in late 19th and early-to-mid 20th century yachting has led me to a number of research projects over the years. These include explorations of specific people, boats and events. Below you will find documents for each of these projects as I collect enough information to make presentation worthwhile.
