Sir Thomas Lipton, the honour guest at this banquet, associated his name to the America's Cup. He had a succession of yachts built -all of them bearing the name "Shamrock" (a reminder of his Irih family heritage).- but never succeeded in winning the race. The 1901 America's Cup was the year of Sir Thomas Lipton's "Shamrock II". The yacht can be seen in the titlepage engraved vignette, while a "Shamrock II" march is the 7th piece in the musical programme.
