Steven Dews’s memorable limited edition celebrates the Fife Regatta, which was held on the Clyde in June 1998. The regatta was organised to bring some of the greatest yachts built by the famous Clyde yard of W Fife & Son back to their birthplace. The yard thrived from 1790 to 1965 and Moonbeam III was the fastest of the surviving Fife yachts to return for the celebrations. Designed by William Fife III and built in 1903, Moonbeam III was victorious in two of her races and is depicted here during the final event of the great regatta, The Kyles of Bute Race.
