Fetching the Mark

Fetching the Mark


John Mecray,

Ref: PRI000101

King George V's great cutter Britannia crosses the bow of the American built schooner Westward. Westward's crew is not preparing to tack, indicating she is fetching the mark and therefore may gain the advantage if Britannia does not tack immediately. Westward and Britannia had a long rivalry despite their dissimilar designs.

Puritan


John Mecray

Ref: PRI000114

The America's Cup defender Puritan is shown with her topmast and gaff topsail stowed, overtaking the Britsih challenger Genesta in this quintessential yacht racing print. Mecray has skillfully painted the challenger laboring under too much sail for the wind conditions while Puritan surges ahead in the deciding race of the fifth defense of the America's Cup in 1885.

New York 30's

New York 30's


John Mecray

Ref: PRI000108

In this classic racing situation Mecray has portrayed three New York Thirties, circa 1907, in a hotly contested race. #18 is fetching or laying the finish line on starboard tack. #16's only chance is to tack now and hope for a lift to the finish line. #16 may also be able to "lee bow" #18. If they engage in this manner #9 would benefit and gain a threatening position.

Stormy Weather

Stormy Weather


John Mecray

Ref: PRI000081

Moving easily through a windswept sea under a dramatic sky, Stormy Weather is clearly in her element. The 54 foot yawl sails with her jib stowed, storm staysail set and a single reef in main and mizzen as the morning watch enjoys a beautiful dawn. Mecray has faithfully captured the look and feel of an early-morning sea. Clouds are breaking up to the southeast as a squall moves off to the north. The setting evokes the experience of an offshore passage for anyone who has spent time at sea—or only dreamed of it.

The Jibe


John Mecray

Jibing a yacht the size of Columbia was a maneuver that involved the entire crew, challenging their skill and timing to the utmost. Here Columbia has completed a jibe around a mark buoy and is setting her massive spinnaker as Defender follows in her wake.
