History of the Yacht Endeavour
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.
The Endeavour model, photos, description and dimensions
The ship model was built to
plans of Bernd
Jocham. Please take your time to have a good look at the set of
photos. There are
several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions,
closer views of hull, deck and rigging. If you click on a
photo you will get that photo in high resolution. Only these high
resolution photographs show how much work and handicraft ability were
put in the model.
Viewing the high resolution photos: If you use Microsoft Internet
Explorer or Firefox, press F11 to minimize navigation bars and have a
larger screen with the photos. The high resolution photos are about 12
megapixel. So they are about 10 - 20 times larger than your 0.5 -
1.3 megapixel computer screen. Most browsers by default downsize the
pictures to screen size, so you cannot see all the details of the ship
models. To see the original resolution move the mouse over the
pictures and click on the magnifying lens.
