The Schooner Yacht 'Cambria', 188 Tons, Racing off Ryde, 1868 - Arthur Wellington Fowles"I have always regarded the model of Cambria as one of the finest in the very fine collection in the model room of the New York Yacht Club. I was on board her during several of her races and I think her failure to win was due to clumsiness of rig rather than to a defect in the model."

The compliment was all the more relevant coming from a fine connoisseur and an attentive witness of the first America’s Cup challenges, Captain Roland F. Coffin.
