History of the Yacht Endeavour

 
The yacht Endeavour was built in 1934 as a J-class racing yacht by Camper & Nicholson in Portsmouth, England, for Thomas Sopwith, who sailed her in the 1934 America's Cup race. She lost in that race, but won many others.
In 1937 she was laid up, until she was bought in 1984 by Elizabeth Meyer who undertook a five year rebuild. Endeavour sailed again in 1989 and has taken part in regattas since.
