Commissioned by

Sir William P. Burton (1864-1942), helmsman of Sir Thomas Lipton’s America’s Cup challenger, Shamrock IV. She became the longest and fastest 12-Metre ever built.

During the 1939 races

JENETTA was the only boat being capable of beating Vanderbilt`s 1939 S&S construction VIM by 2 seconds on a 27nm race.

Of the 1,000 or more races,

Sir William Burton has sailed in twenty-five years, 618 were on his own yachts. He won with these 235 first prizes and 140 others, making total of 375.

‘Jenetta ‘ was bought

from the late Sir William’s estate by L J Clements of Banbury, Oxfordshire.  In 1950 ‘Jenetta’ was sold to A W Stevens of Stirlingshire.  A few years later he sold ‘Jenetta ‘, now out of class to the Urry family in Vancouver.

She was abandoned for many years in Vancouver, Canada

“Almost exactly 80 years since her launch in 1939

“Almost exactly 80 years since her launch in 1939, Jenetta, the longest 3rd rule 12m ever built, was relaunched at the Robbe and Berking Classics yard in Flensburg in June, 2019.
After a meticulous rebuild, she soon proved her Mylne provenance, with some emphatic results at the R&B Sterling Cup

We are on a quest to win the battle -there is no second

HELSINKI, FI (August 21, 2021) – All nine of the Vintage 12mR fleet competing at the 2021 Evli 12mR World Championship returned to the race course this morning after an evening of cooperation between crews to repair damages sustained during Friday’s heavy-weather sailing. A true testament to the durability of Vintage 12mR yachts and of the commitment shown by those who care for these historic racing boats.

Race One – or sixth in the now completed seven-race 2021 Evli 12mR World Championship series hosted by Nyländska Jaktklubben, NJK –started at 10:05 EEST, south of Isossari Island in 4-6 knots of breeze from the WSW (240 °) and calm seas.

HELSINKI, FI (August 20, 2021) – After two days without sailing due to extreme weather conditions, official competition for the 2021 Evli 12mR World Championship resumed today with three races held in the Gulf of Finland, hosted by Nyländska Jaktklubben, NJK.

With pent-up anticipation, the crew energy was palpable around sunny Helsinki harbor this morning. The first race started at 10:05 EEST, south of Isossari Island with steady 16-18 knot winds increasing to +20 kts in choppy 1.5-1.7m seas.

In Race One of the day

In Race 1 keeping an eye to the sky paid off for the Finish Blue Marlin (FIN-1) team, skippered by Henrik Andersin (Kotka, FI) who won the first race in light and shifty winds. On the first weather leg, Vim (US-15) took an early lead after crossing Wings (K-15) on starboard with the 9-boat fleet in pursuit on the right side of the course. Blue Marlin (FIN-1) was mid-fleet when

Sir William Burton (1864-1942) had sailed in more than 1000 boats in British waters.

For twenty-five years, yachting was his favorite sport, but instead of making a game of yachting, he made it a serious study just as much as his business.

He was one of those men who did never stay at “the old ways of doing things” for long. He would enter everything with heart, soul, and great passion.
