The period also saw the days of the famous America's Cup challengers, Shamrock IV and Shamrock V, designed by Charles Nicholson for Sir Thomas Lipton, and the two Endeavours he designed for Sir Thomas Sopwith, and of the lesser International Classes, the twelve, eight and six metres." - from the dj.
