Latitude Kinsale was proud to be chosen to create prizes for three J-Class regattas. The J-Class are undoubtedly the most beautiful yachts in the world. There are very few in existence and these magnificent boats are deemed to be part of a very elite group. It was a great honour to have my work chosen by such a prestigious association. This chart of the Isle of Wight is one of the three, the others being Falmouth and Saint Tropez to Iles d’Hyeres.
The original of this black and white chart by Captain Sheringham dates from 1851. The Isle Of Wight is probably the most recognisable island shape in the world, probably because of its popularity as a recreational area being so close to London. The Solent, with some treacherous areas like the Needles channel and the various banks are the subject of many tales and adventures. As a 3D chart this is a very popular piece.
