The First Intercolonial Yacht Race. January 15th 1887. Supplement to the ''Illustrated Sydney News.'' February 1887.
1877. Sydney: Gibbs, Shallard & Co, 1887. Chromolithgraph, sheet 390 x 530mm. Tear in title area repaired. An ocean race between three yachts, the Waitangi (for New South Wales, despite the New Zealand name), Janet (Victoria) and Magic (also NSW), in the order they completed the race. In the background are the cliffs of Botany Head. In the later 1800’s, intercolonial yachting events were a showcase for the best representative that the participating colonies could send. Even then they knew winning races required having the most cutting-edge yacht available.
