The 193 ton yacht 'Alarm' in a light swell
A painting of the yacht 'Alarm' shown here as a cutter. The 'Alarm' was one of the most famous of the early Squadron yachts. She was built by Thomas Inman at Lymington in 1830 for the famous yachtsman and landowner Joseph Weld of Lymington and Lulworth Castle, Dorset. She won several King's Cups before the tonnage rules were altered to open the race up to smaller yachts. As a cutter she raced 'America'. Probably as a result of 'America's' influence, Joseph Weld had her lengthened by 20ft at the bow in 1852. Thereafter the 'Alarm' was rigged as a schooner and was one of the most famous 19th century British yachts. She continued racing until 1867 and was not broken up until 1889. The Museum has an oil painting by Nicholas Condy, the younger, depicting a deck scene on board the 'Alarm', circa 1842-1851, see BHC4178. Also in the Collection are two trophies won by 'Alarm' during her racing career, the Queen's Trophy for Yachting, see PLT0257, and the King's Cup for Yachting, 1830.
