This painting is an original oil on canvas by marine artist Roger Davies.

Lulworth, restored to her 1926 condition, sailing off Portovenere in northern Italy.

The seed of inspiration for this painting of Lulworth by Roger Davies came when Roger was invited to sail on her as she undertook her sea trials off Portovenere. Her sea trials were in this region as the waters off Viareggio in Tuscany, where she was restored, are too shallow for her deep keel. Roger obtained his source material whilst buzzing around Lulworth in a rib from her mothership Iduna.. Previous to this Roger was commissioned by the yacht's owner to paint an original oil which now hangs in her saloon.

Lulworth is the largest gaff-rigged cutter in the world. Lulworth's early performances were disappointing in the 1920's, but Charles Nicholson made changes that realised her potential. She was designed and built the royal cutter Brittania. She was champion of the British regatta circuit's Big Class in 1925 and 1926. At the time Lulworth was owned by Sir Mortimer Singer (of sewing machine fame).
