  • Short Summary

    The Royal Yacht Britannia takes part in a race off the Isle of Wight.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Isle of Wight. Royal Cowes - The King and Queen - on holiday visit - see 'Britannia' in her new Bermuda rig beaten by 'Shamrock V' in thrilling race between all the "crack" boats."

    Isle of Wight, Hampshire.

    Shots of large racing yachts racing off Cowes.

    N.B. Sadly there are no pictures of King George V and Queen Mary and I can't identify which yacht is 'Britannia'.

    Sound Track Missing.

    This material is from 1930s Extras Reel 4 - keep separately from original newsreels.
