America's Cup first J-yacht winner
Columbia was one of the only three
yachts that ever won America's Cup two times.
Launched in June, 1899,
the J-Yacht Columbia easily won the
elimination trials against the rebuilt former
defender, Defender. In the 1899 America's Cup,
won all three races against the British defender
Shamrock. Notably, Hope
Goddard Iselin was the only female on the crew,
serving as afterguard.
Columbia was selected again in 1901 to defend the
Cup, and again under the command of Charlie Barr.
She won all three races against Shamrock II.
