The New Yacht Angela -- May 29, 2013

From the 03-September-1895 San Francisco Call. William A Coulter did many maritime drawings for the newspaper. Click on the image for a larger view. 

With the America's Cup and preliminary races coming to San Francisco Bay this summer, I thought I would post pictures of some racing yachts. 

The new sloop yacht Angela came down from Vallejo yesterday on her maiden cruise. Captain Woods had quite a party of friends on board, and when the anchor was dropped off Sausalito they all went ashore for a run. In the afternoon the return trip was begun. The Angela is a splendid sea boat and a fast sailer. Captain Woods is going to enter her in some of the regattas and expects to make a good record. She spreads 4000 feet of canvas, is 38 feet long, 13 feet broad and 5 feet deep.
