In 1896 there was a large regatta held in Swansea Bay – the so called Royal Regatta since Britannia was joined by Meteor, Satanita, Caress and (the winner) Ailsa in the main yacht race for a gold cup. Isolde and Corsair competed for another cup.


The scenes of this regatta are depicted in watercolour, by the marine artist Charles Dixon who was a member of the BCYC.
