The J-class yacht Velsheda was designed by Charles Ernest Nicholson and built in 1933 by Camper and Nicholsons at Gosport, Hampshire. She was built for businessman William Lawrence Stephenson and between 1933 and 1936, she won many races and competed with other great yachts such as Britannia, Endeavour, and Shamrock V.
After a distinguished racing career in the 1930s, Velsheda languished for many years on a mud berth on the Hamble. Eventually sold, her new owner set about rebuilding her with the latest in rig, sail technology, and deck hardware. The result was the creation of a yacht that is both fast but which still retains her classic racing pedigree.
Velsheda was relaunched on 3rd September 1997 and she spent several weeks on the sail trials on the Solent, which is a strait separating the Isle of Wight from the mainland of England.
