Documentary charting the 2001 return to British waters of three 1930s J-Class racing yachts. Designed for competition in the Americas Cup between 1930 and 1937, only ten J-Class yachts were ever built. This film documents the current sailing activities of the only three surviving yachts - Shamrock V, Velsheda and Endeavour - and shows their historic return, in August 2001, to racing in UK waters for the first time in 65 years.
