Tommy Sopwith's Endeavour - Reading up on the history of the America's Cup I stumbled across the Sopwith name. To invest $400,000 in the middle of the Great Depression and build a Cup challenger, one needs capital. Turns out the Sopwith planes were highly successful at downing enemies in the Great War. Sopwith Camels were responsible for shooting down around 1,300 German planes during WWI. In the hands of experienced pilots they were good for close combat. The Sopwith Camel and Sopwith Pup were famous and popular planes, their exploits and successes good for filling newspapers and magazines of the day. Sopwith himself became rich, and decided to take on the USA, less violently, but with the same dedication. Sopwith financed the British challenger Endeavour, which lost to the US Rainbow in 1934.
