    Full title reads: "Newport, R. I. All America goes yacht 'mad'. Excitement is at fever heat for 'Shamrock's' great contest with 'Enterprise' for 'that little old mug'."

    Newport, Rhode Island, United States of America (USA).

    Shots of the sailing boat 'Shamrock' racing out at sea. Voiceover expresses confidence in Shamrock. Various shots of Shamrock testing her racing rig. Voiceover, possibly owner Sir Thomas Lipton commenting on boat.
