The schooner yacht Cambria, of the Royal Harwich Yacht Club, won the "great ocean race" of 1870 against the American yacht Dauntless, from Daunt Rock, Queenstown, Ireland, July 4th, to Sandy Hook on the New Jersey coast, USA - arriving July 27th. The Dauntless was commanded by James Gordon Bennett Jr. (1841 - 1918), publisher of the New York Herald and the youngest Commodore ever of the New York Yacht Club. His extravagant lifestyle and shocking behaviour are believed to have inspired the phrase "Gordon Bennett" as an expression of incredulity. Short descriptions of each yacht below title. By Thomas Goldsworth Dutton (1819/20 - 1891; fl.).

A view of the yacht, 'Lady Busk', owned by Hans Busk and built by Henry Tipping of Portsmouth. Hans Busk the younger (1815 - 1882) was one of the originators of 'England's volunteer army'. Originally it was his intention to adopt a naval career and, being forced to abandon it, he devoted much of his leisure to yachting. He mastered the principles of naval construction, and made designs for several yachts which were very successful. He was the first to advocate life-ship stations, and fitted out a model life-ship at his own expense.
