Footnotes

  • HMRY Britannia was designed by GL Watson and built in Scotland for Edward, Prince of Wales, latterly King Edward Vll. A phenomenally successful racing yacht, she underwent several changes in rig during her career, finally finishing as a Bermudian cutter to compete against the J Class yachts in the 1930's. Inherited by King George V on the death of his father, she was finally scuttled off St Katherine's Point in 1936 on his Majesty's death.
