HISTORY

ATLANTIC was built in 1903 by Townsend and Downey shipyard, and designed by William Gardner, for Wilson Marshall. The three-masted schooner was skippered by Charlie Barr and it set the record for fastest transatlantic passage by a monohull in the 1905 Kaiser's Cup race. Atlantic not only won the prestigious trans-Atlantic race, she set a record for a sailing vessel, unbeaten until 1980, of 12 days, 4 hours, 1 minute and 19 seconds. Powered by steam auxiliary engine, she sported a special low-drag propeller and a folding funnel, both of which removed for racing.
