velsheda sailing yacht

Designed by Charles Nicholson and built by Camper & Nicholson in 1933 for Mr W.L. Stephenson, owner of the Woolworth chain of shops. She was Nicholson’s second design for a J Class and Stephenson’s second big yacht. “Velsheda” was named after Stephenson’s three daughters, Velma, Sheila and Daphne. Stephenson never planned to compete for the America’s Cup but instead raced with the greatest names in classic yachting including “Britannia”, “Endeavour” and “Shamrock” between 1933 and 1936.

In her second season she won more than 40 races and achieved an outstanding record of success at Regattas from Southend to Dartmouth. Other venues included Torbay, Swanage and the Solent, all under the control of the famous Captain Mountifield.

Around the late 1930’s, she represented the most advanced technical design for spars, rigging, sails, deck gear and ropes. Her masts were aluminium, made by bending plates and riveting them together. Sails were made from the new Terylene threads and deck gear now included winches for easier handling of sheets. The standing rigging in the 30s was solid rod. Below decks accommodation was limited to just the main saloon, owners quarters aft, and storage for sails and equipment forward.

By 1937 she was laid up in a mud berth on the Hamble and became derelict. Many sailors remember visiting her – one recalls sailing in the annual Warming Pan race at Hamble River Sailing Club, and all the visiting crew being taken up the river to their overnight accommodation – Velsheda!

This unique yacht was rescued in 1984 by Terry Brabant, who economically refitted her for charter work with a new steel mast and limited interior. Still without an engine she sailed regularly along the UK South Coast on charter and occasionally ventured to the Mediterranean and Caribbean.

Velsheda’ was purchased in 1996 as a bare hull lying at mooring in Portsmouth Harbour, and was taken to Southampton Yacht Services, on the River Itchen where a two year comprehensive rebuild was completed to bring her back into immaculate racing condition. She was fitted with the tallest one piece carbon mast in the world and a comprehensive suit of racing sails were produced, developed from wind tunnel testing at Southampton University. She was re-launched in November 1997. Dykstra Naval Architects were employed for the refit and also of other J Class yachts in the current racing field, including “Shamrock V”, “Endeavour” and “Ranger”.

Velsheda, JK7

Launched April 1933

Design: Charles E Nicholson

velsheda sailing yacht

Launched in 1933 for British retail magnate WL Stephenson, Chairman of the Woolworth chain of shops in Britain, Velsheda JK7 was designed by Charles E NIcholson and built in Gosport, England at Camper and Nicholson.  

Although under the Universal Rule the J Class was the de facto America’s Cup class from 1930-1937, Velsheda actually never raced in the America’s Cup. However between 1933 and 1936 she was hugely successful in her native English waters racing against Britannia as well as Cup challengers Endeavour and Shamrock. She is named after the owner’s three daughters Velma, Sheila and Daphne.  

Velsheda embraced the latest design technology of the times. Her aluminium mast was manufactured by bending and riveting plates together, sails were Terylene and winches helped with sail handling, and standing rigging was solid rod.  

Compared with the Js of her time she was 6ft 4in longer than Vanderbilt’s Enterprise and nearly seven feet longer than Velsheda’s Nicholson designed predecessor Shamrock V.  

From 1937 she was laid up in a mud berth in the Hamble before being purchased in 1984 by Terry Brabant who had a basic refit completed which included a steel mast and a basic interior. Velsheda sailed mainly around the south coast of England, occasionally ventured to the Mediterranean and went to the Caribbean once. She was then bought by a Swiss owner who started a refit but was unable to continue to fund the programme. Laid up in Gosport, where she was originally built, she was purchased as a shell in 1996 by the current owner who commissioned a comprehensive two year rebuild which was led by Dykstra Naval Architects at Southampton Yacht Services.

A new aero package was modelled and tested at Southampton University culminating in what was then the tallest carbon rig in the world. Velsheda was relaunched in November 1997 and has remained active and immaculately maintained ever since, racing with considerable success in Europe and the Caribbean. Since 2000 her owner has been a prime mover in re-establishing and promoting the J Class Association and also enjoys cruising extensively.

Maintaining the same core race crew for many years, Velsheda has long been considered the benchmark team in terms of boat handling - and despite inherent disadvantages such as not being able to carry the same rig tension as the modern replicas - she remains very competitive under the J Class rule as well as on the handicap systems which prevail in the Caribbean and the Med. She has won her class in Saint Barths, Antigua, Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and Les Voiles de Saint Tropez, all regattas where this most historical original J remains a showstopping attraction.

This owner is one of the most accomplished, expert owner-helms in the fleet and is surrounded by a core team which is a mix of Kiwis and Brits. Veteran Tom Dodson is tactician with Grant Simmer as navigator, recently supported by British Olympian Andy Beadsworth as strategist.

Quick Enquiry

Designed by Charles Nicholson and built by Camper & Nicholson in 1933 for Mr W.L. Stephenson, Owner of Woolworth chain of shops, she was built in 1933 at Gosport. She was Nicholson's second design for a J Class and Stephenson's second big yacht. "Velsheda" was named after Stephenson's three daughters, Velma, Sheila and Daphne. She raced with the greatest names in classic yachting including "Britannia", "Endeavour" and "Shamrock" between 1933 and 1936. In her second season she won more than 40 races and achieved an outstanding record of success at Regatta's from Southend to Dartmouth. Other venues included Torbay, Swanage and of course the Solent, all under the control of the very famous Captain MountIfield . The permanent racing crew at that time was probably around 16 men and this would have been augmented to around 30 for racing. When not required for sail changes, spare crew were moved to below decks. In her day - around the late 1930's, she represented the most advanced technical design for spars, rigging, sails, deck gear and ropes. Her masts were Aluminium, made by bending plates and riveting them together. Sails were made from the new Terylene threads and deck gear now included winches for easier handling of sheets. The standing rigging was solid rod, even in the 30's, but with so much stretch in the rigging and systems it was inevitable that J Class masts could not be held in column and would collapse in stronger winds. In anything above a Force 3, there was serious concern about holding the rig in place without collapse. Below decks accommodation was limited to just the main saloon, owners quarters aft, and storage for sails and equipment forward. By 1937 she was laid up in a mud berth on the Hamble and became derelict. Many sailors remember visiting her - one recalls sailing in the annual Warming Pan race at Hamble, and all the visiting crew being taken up the river to their overnight accommodation - Velsheda! This unique yacht was rescued from a Hamble mud berth in 1984 by Terry Brabant, who economically refitted her for charter work with a new steel mast and limited interior. Still without an engine she sailed regularly along the UK South Coast on Charter Work and occasionally ventured to the Mediterranean and Caribbean. She had a chequered career: whilst on charter during the early 90's Velsheda visited the UK East Coast where she found herself on the beach on a falling tide. Fortunately she was recovered safely! Occasionally she raced in the annual Round the Island Race and although in poor condition, she was still an impressive site, competing the 60 mile course in quick time. She was laid up and moored at Gosport in 1995/6.

sailing yacht rose racing

24m Wally Rose defends winning title at the Superyacht Cup Palma

The 24-metre Wally sailing yacht Rose has successfully defended her title at the Superyacht Cup Palma 2024, becoming the first yacht to retain the overall winner position since Kokomo in 2002. This victory marks Rose as the first Wally to win Europe’s longest-running regatta two years in a row. The racing events, held around the Bay of Palma, featured three classes: J Class, Class A and Class B.

The opening Pantaenius race day on Thursday saw solid conditions with strong winds. Rose led the pack in Class B, finishing ahead of Nautor Swan yacht duo Umiko and Dark Horse, with debutant Calabash securing fourth place. While in Class A, Cervo claimed victory, followed by Maximus and Vijonara.

Friday’s Jaquet Droz race day was unexpectedly cancelled due to a lack of wind in the Bay of Palma, marking the first time since 2007 that racing had to be abandoned. Event director Kay Branagh commented: “It’s a real shame to have lost a day of racing, but we have perhaps been very fortunate over many years.”

The final race, St Regis, brought good conditions with sunshine and a steady 10-knot breeze. Rose secured her second win in Class B, clinching the overall title with a perfect score. Dark Horse finished second overall, followed by Umiko and Calabash.

Rose is based in Palma and helmed by Captain Ben Potter, who expressed his delight regarding the racing: “The whole day was magic, and we could not have asked for better conditions. Of course, it was great to be able to defend our title - we knew we had a lot to do, and the rest of the fleet did not make it easy, but we got away well, and it was just a case of making up time around the course.”

In Class A, Maximus took gold, winning both the St Regis race and the class overall, beating Cervo . Captain Lars Loftus of Maximus said: “Everyone is over the moon; it was fantastic. We had a plan to sail the boat hard and clean, and we stuck to the plan; it was paid off.”

The J Class saw Svea dominate with her third win of the regatta. Svea ’s tactician Bouwe Bekking said: “The crew work was good, and the owners did a really special job driving, really smooth.” Velsheda and Rainbow finished level on points, with Velsheda taking the runner-up spot on countback. Despite missing out on second place, Rainbow didn't leave empty-handed, receiving the Spirit of the Event at the prize-giving ceremony held on the terrace of Real Club Náutico de Palma.

The Superyacht Cup Palma 2025 will be held from 25 June to 28 June.

The Unique Burial of a Child of Early Scythian Time at the Cemetery of Saryg-Bulun (Tuva)

<< Previous page

Pages:  379-406

In 1988, the Tuvan Archaeological Expedition (led by M. E. Kilunovskaya and V. A. Semenov) discovered a unique burial of the early Iron Age at Saryg-Bulun in Central Tuva. There are two burial mounds of the Aldy-Bel culture dated by 7th century BC. Within the barrows, which adjoined one another, forming a figure-of-eight, there were discovered 7 burials, from which a representative collection of artifacts was recovered. Burial 5 was the most unique, it was found in a coffin made of a larch trunk, with a tightly closed lid. Due to the preservative properties of larch and lack of air access, the coffin contained a well-preserved mummy of a child with an accompanying set of grave goods. The interred individual retained the skin on his face and had a leather headdress painted with red pigment and a coat, sewn from jerboa fur. The coat was belted with a leather belt with bronze ornaments and buckles. Besides that, a leather quiver with arrows with the shafts decorated with painted ornaments, fully preserved battle pick and a bow were buried in the coffin. Unexpectedly, the full-genomic analysis, showed that the individual was female. This fact opens a new aspect in the study of the social history of the Scythian society and perhaps brings us back to the myth of the Amazons, discussed by Herodotus. Of course, this discovery is unique in its preservation for the Scythian culture of Tuva and requires careful study and conservation.
