Project No. 698 built for Jacob Frederick Brown, a Boston textile manufacturer. Brown owned her until 1927. Her name was changed to Janeen and owned by Capt. Lou Boudreau for some time.
Tom Perkins put her through a refit in 1995 at Cantiere Beconcini in La Spezia, Italy, restoring the yacht to her former glory with her eye-catching gaff topsail rig. In the same year she was involved in a collision at the Nioulargue where she collided with a 6-Metre, ‘Taos Brett IV’, whose owner died.
She is now a regular on the Mediterranean circuit and in 2005 Tom Perkins finally sold her to a French owner who continues to race her competitively.
She won the Pendennis Cup in Falmouth in 2012 and was back again in 2014 to defend it.
