Scope and Contents

255 x 200 mm. A yachting scene. The typescript caption attached to the reverse of the print continues: 'All hands are busy when the starting gun sounds for events in the Out Island Regatta. In a marine version of sports car racing's 'Le Mans' start, boats are anchored with sails down. Then there's a mad rush to up anchor and hoist sail at the same moment. Here the dingy classes get underway, with varying degrees of success. The event was held at George Town, Exuma, April 11-13. -30-'. The caption is from the Bahamas News Bureau, who have stamped the reverse of the print with the reference: '12767', and continues: 'Direction of: Robinson-Hannagan Associates', giving their full postal address and telephone number.
