Cabin sloops racing, c. 1924. The lead boat is believed to be Ray Davis’ Duchess
Three cabin sloops racing. Duchess, an Islip Class designed by William Gardner in 1909 is believed to be the lead boat. Ray Davis brought Duchess to Galveston Bay in 1922. The Gardner Islip is not to be confused with the smaller Cox and Stevens Islip of which Houston Yacht Club had five in 1924.
