To celebrate The Fife Regatta 2008, Alastair Houston created a special limited edition collectors print from a watercolour depicting the 19m class yacht ‘Mariquita’ on the Clyde.
She is a stunning example of a large racing cutter built at Fairlie. Originally commissioned by Mr AK Stothert in 1911, she was recovered in the 1990s from a
state of great disrepair and has recently been restored to perfection. She is unquestionably one of the most beautiful yachts of her era ever built, a testament to Fife’s genius in fast design as well as aesthetic beauty. Each print comes titled with the event and participating yacht clubs as a momento to this great gathering of yachts.
