Jameson 3 (IOR 50)

Today's featured yacht is Jameson 3, but she is less famous for her racing record than for this photo of her glorious broach during the 1993 Admiral's Cup series. Jameson 3 was the 'big boat' (50 feet) in the Irish team (the ex-Australian yacht Heaven Can Wait), but she was disqualified in race 6 and failed to finish race 7, the Fastnet. The team was bolstered by a strong showing by Jameson 2, which finished third overall, but were severely hampered by Jameson 1 which had to retire from the regatta when she sank after striking Gurnard Ledge in the first race. The Irish team finished seventh overall, of eight teams.
