Weetamoe 5.3.15

"Weetamoe" & "Vanite"

Racing in Marblehead 

 July 4, 1933

Weetamoe in the fore with Vanitie....


Rear Commodore [center]  of the N.Y.Y.C George Nichols skipper onboard Weetamoe.

Vanitie was built for Alexander Smith Cochran first competing in 1914 to defend the 

America's Cup but lost to Resolute. She would be refitted and eventually 

sail in the J-class after 1931 and then scrapped 1938.

Nichols would go on to sail Weetamoe for Frederick Prince, in 1930 and 1934 but was 

unsuccessful in trials for the Cup.
