HISTORY

Endeavour, a 130-foot J Class sloop, was commissioned by Sir T.O.M. Sopwith and built by Camper & Nicholson at Gosport England to challenge for the America's Cup in 1934. Having prepared his campaign in Shamrock V, Sopwith was keen to ensure that this yacht was the most advanced design possible. With his experience designing aircraft Sopwith applied aviation technology to  Endeavour's rig and winches and spared nothing to make her the finest vessel of her day.

 

 From launching in 1934 she continued her preparation by competing against Shamrock V and the newly launched Velsheda (owned by W.L Stephenson). She swept through the British racing fleet and into the hearts of yachtsmen the world around, winning many races in her first season. Like many before her, Endeavour did not win the Cup but she came closer to doing so than any other challenger.

 

Endeavour, Velsheda and Shamrock raced together at the J Class Regatta for the first time in UK waters after more than 65 years. Endeavour won both regattas after close racing between the yachts.
