    Sir Thomas Lipton on 'Shamrock'.

    Location of events unknown.

    Sir Thomas Lipton, of Lipton Tea, on his yacht; he had 5 over the years; each named the 'Shamrock'; and competed in international yachting events such as Americas Cup.

    GV the beautiful yacht near land; moving to right; w/ full sails; hills in BG w/ trees & scattered buildings. A closer shot; looking up at Lipton and another man on deck; seen between top of rail and boom at bottom of sail. Tracking shot in harbour - many other boats and ships of various sorts; buildings in distance in 1st part of shot. Nice shot of the yacht moving across water; casting a shadow toward camera. Another view of yacht sailing; to rt; seagulls flying around; land in BG - big hills, rocks & trees. Closer shot of yacht.

    Back to previous shot; as yacht sails off screen to rt. Leaving just shot of water and the land in distance; with buildings sticking out of trees on hillside. Looks like Mediterranean setting.

    Recreation; sea; beauty, boats and ships.
