The Spirit Of The Regatta Trophy

For each Regatta since 2011 we have commissioned an original painting to represent the Spirit of the Regatta. It features in our publicity for the Regatta and the framed original is presented as the ‘Spirit of the Regatta Trophy’ at the end of the Regatta to the boat and crew that has best represented the Corinthian ethos of the Regatta. The 2019 Spirit of the Regatta painting below is an original in oils by Cornish marine artist Sheena Bevis-White. It shows the yacht ‘Little Tern’ on a fresh run up the Trieux River and, in 2019, was awarded to the French yacht Kraken II.
