    Southampton, Hampshire.

    Intertitle: "TO LIFT THAT CUP! The Shamrock III - now on its way to America to achieve Sir Thomas Lipton's lifelong ambition."

    Sir Thomas Lipton's yacht is bound for America - possibly for entry into the Americas Cup.

    L/S of the yacht - Shamrock III - being towed out of Southampton harbour, one of the crew waves. L/S of a steam tug boat towing the yacht.

    Good panning M/S of Sir Lipton and his crew, all wearing jerseys with 'Shamrock' on - they appear to be standing on the deck of the yacht. C/U of Sir Lipton talking and laughing with a man in an officer's cap (perhaps the skipper or first mate?). The crew all seem very upbeat - looking forward to their forthcoming adventure ...
