1247 Eleonora at The Needles

1247 Eleonora at The Needles - Alum Bay and The Needles panoramics

This was taken during 2012's Round the Island Race. Ben Ainslie took part by sailing on board The Eleonora which is and exact replica of the schooner Westward.

Westward was launched on March 31, 1910 as hull number 692 at the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. in Bristol, Rhode Island, USA. She was one of the most famous and best known racing schooners in the world for her time.

She truly is a beauty to photograph and felt a slight sepia tone would add to her timeless quality.
