During the 1930s J-class yachts were built to race in the America\'s Cup. Only 10 were ever built as they were extremely expensive to build and maintain. The J-class yacht Velsheda was designed by Charles Nicholson and built in 1933 by Camper and Nicholsons at Gosport, Hampshire. She was named after first owner W.L. Stevenson\'s (Woolworth) three daughters Velma, Sheila and Daphne, Velsheda was the second of four legendary UK J-class yachts
