COLUMBIA
1899 America's Cup first J-yacht winner

It's hard to win an America's cup; extremely hard to repeat that victory.  And Columbia was one of the only three that ever won America's Cup twice.  Moreover, she did in a row!  The first ever record.

Columbia was designed and built in 1898-9 by the legendary shipbuilder Nathanael Herreshoff and the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company for owners J. Pierpont Morgan and Edwin Dennison Morgan of the New York Yacht Club.  She was the third successful defender built by Herreshoff.

She won all three races against the British defender, Shamrock, in the 1899 America's Cup.

Columbia was selected again in 1901 to defend the Cup, and again under the command of Charlie Barr, won all three races against Shamrock II.   Such  outstanding achievement is very for racing boats.
