A programme recalling past races on the eve of the Norwegian challenge to Scotland on the Clyde this year
Original script by Guy Christie
Adapted and produced by R. F. Dunnet
The Seawanhaka Cup, the oldest-established international challenge trophy for small yacht racing, derives its name from a sailing club with headquarters on Long Island Sound, U.S.A. It was originally awarded to the winner of a race between an English-owned small yacht and an American,
The trophy was first brought to the Clyde in 1922 by the late Fred J. Stephen with his yacht Coila III ; he held the Cup until 1925. Subsequently the trophy was won by Norwegian and American yachtsmen and in recent years the contest has more or less been a three-cornered one between Americans, Norwegians, and British. Last year, on September 17, 18, and 19 in Oyster Bay, U.S.A., J. Herbert Thorn , representing the Royal Northern Yacht Club of Scotland, won the Cup back from America by defeating the representative of the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club of the United States, who were then the holders.
