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

Tuiga, Hispania and The Lady Anne racing in Cowes Roads in 1912 in the 15-metre class. It was a popular class and in total 19 vessels were built. All were William Fife designs. All three yachts are still sailing today, beautifully restored.

Tuiga was built at the yard of boat builder William Fife in 1909. William Fife designed Tuiga as a twin to the Fife-built Hispania, so that the two 15-metre yachts were equally matched for racing purposes. After several years of complete retsoration in England Tuiga is today the Yacht Club de Monaco's flagship. The classic sailing yacht Tuiga won overll in the Cowes Westward Cup Regatta 2010.

Hispania was first owned by King Alfonso XIII of Spain. She was restored in 2005. The Lady Anne, like Tuiga, was designed by William Fife, the first owner being George Coast. The Lady Anne was refitted in 1999. These three Classic Yachts, along with Mariska, returned to compete for the first time in 100 years in the Monaco Classic Week in 2011.
