Trial of sailing off Cape de Galta [Cabo de Gata], 30 July 1852, 'Trafalgar' and 'Terrible' in the foreground by George Pechell Mends zoom

Trial of sailing off Cape de Galta [Cabo de Gata], 30 July 1852, 'Trafalgar' and 'Terrible' in the foreground

Inscribed in pencil top left 'Trial of / Sailing - off Cape / de Galta / July 30th 1852'; and in ink along the bottom identifying the ships: 'Dauntless', 'Encounter', 'Fury' (paddler, not participating) 'Arrogant' 'Trafalgar' (acting as the turning point), 'Terrible' 'Highflyer' (in the lead), 'Britannia' (Rear-Admiral Dundas's Mediterranean fleet flagship, apparently acting as the far turning point), 'Phaeton', 'Bell[eroph]on'[?], 'Vengeance', 'Albion', 'Indefatigable'. All the ships ahead in the race, as far back as 'Terrible', are under limited sail and steam, and bearing up into the wind on the starboard tack as they round the 'Trafalgar' (Mends's ship). Those from 'Phaeton' on, none steam-assisted, are well behind under full sail including royals and studding sails as they run down on 'Trafalgar' before the wind. The apparent location is off Cabo de Gata near Almeria, on the south coast of Spain. For a drawing of a related trial a fortnight before, see PAI0870.
