Client References- Endeavour Model Boat Kit:
I promised I'd write after giving the model to my
husband for Christmas,tolet you have his feedback. He was absolutely delighted
with the gift and has started work on it already-although I suspect it
will take him a very, very long time to complete. Anyway, a great success all
round and something that he will enjoy for hours and hours-not to
mention the fact, it keeps him out of my way!
Hope you have a good year.

The Endeavour was built
for Sir Thomas Sopwith when he challenged for the America’s Cup. The
first was a J Class yacht of 143 tons displacement and setting 7,560
sq. feet of sail.
She was considered the best yacht of
her day in the J Class. At the Cup race in 1934, she came very close to
defeating the American defender Rainbow, and set for the first time in
the history of the Cup, a double clewed jib, which had been designed by
her owner, who was the skipper.
While she was tuning-up in the Solent however, astute American
observers had spotted her novel jib, in time for the defender to be
equipped with a similar type of sail.
The second Endeavour was also a J class yacht, designed and built by
the same team. She was built to the maximum waterline length allowed by
the Cup rules, namely 26.52 metres.
Trials in the Solent indicated that Endeavour II was demonstrably
faster than her predecessor, but she was to find herself pitted against
a defender whose design owed much to the joint work of W. Starling
Burgess and a brilliant new designer of large yachts, J.Stephens.
In the series of 1937, the American Ranger was the faster of the two,
and it turned out later that she was the fastest J Class ever built.
