"Columbia" winning the Cup
"The decisive moment in the great International Yacht Races is shown in this picture. Against a background of well defined clouds, the light boat is seen marking the finishing line in this great aquatic struggle. As the Columbia crosses the line, followed closely by the Shamrock, we see the steam from the whistle of the light ship announcing the well earned victory of the American yacht"--Edison films catalog.
