• Short Summary

    The Royal Yacht Britannia is among those racing off the Isle of Wight.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Cowes, IOW. Royal 'Cowes'. Great social and yachting Festival with The King's 'Britannia' - winning her 200th race - marks climax of brilliant season."

    Cowes, Isle of Wight, Hampshire.

    Good shots of large yachts racing. One of the yachts (according to the voiceover) is the 'Britannia' with King George V racing onboard her. The voiceover tells us the names and owners of several boats.

    Missing intertitle should read: "A tragic moment "Lucilla" sinks after collision with "Lulworth"." Presumably there is a section of this item missing.
