The late 1800's and early 1900's constituted a golden age of extravagance and privilege for sailing; it was a sport enthusiastically enjoyed by royalty and wealthy families across the Western world: Kaiser Wilhelm II, the Tsar of Russia, the Price of Wales, King Alfonso XIII of Spain, the Rockefellers, the Vanderbilts, president Roosevelt and Pierpont Morgan to name but a few.
