Artist's Description

The Ranger is a J-class yacht built in 1937. J-class yachts were built between 1930 – 1937 for the wealthy elite. The 1930-s America’s Cup regatta were all raced in the J-Class after the Universal Rule was established. They competed with sailing talents in Britain in 3 races of the America’s Cup.

Most were scrapped prior to WWII for their valuable metals. A revival was triggered in the 1980’s when Elizabeth Meyer oversaw the refit of the Endeavor and Velsheda.

This was shot in Newport, RI harbor with admirers lining the shore at the Castle Inn on Ocean Drive.
