European Festival of Yacht Racing
The festival was held at Kiel, Germany, and began on 26th June. Amongst the competitors taking part was Sir Thomas Lipton’s yacht “Shamrock” and Mr Myles B Kennedy’s yacht “White Heather”. The Illustrated London News for 6th July 1912 contains a series of photographs of the event. The Ship “The Sovereign of the Seas” depicted on the reverse represents the first three-decked ship launched in 1637. Brown notes that the design is somewhat similar to Nicholas Briot’s medal the Dominion of the Sea in 1630.
