Hampton Yacht Club Regatta Cyanotype Map

Courses and Marks for Hampton Yacht Club Regatta, July, 1941.

DESCRIPTION: Unusual self-published cyanotype (blueprint) course map of the Hampton Yacht Club 14th Annual Regatta July 5 and 6 at Hampton, Virginia, complete with a sketch of an undulating sea serpent (rarely found on a cyanotype) and another small cartoon at the Hampton Bar. The course chart shows the coast outline with the offshore one-fathom line and the beacons and buoys marking the course.

This pre-war cartographic artifact is sold with two included documents:
  • A printed summary of the Regatta's sailing event with notes on prizes, courses, starting signals, rules for resolving protests, and a schedule of sailing events. For a map of the course the summary states: "See chart no. 400 and blueprint copies of part of the same which will be available at the clubhouse."
  • A one-page type-written set of Racing Rules for Warwick One Design Dinghies.
