XIV Copa del Rey – Panerai 2017
Ph: Guido Cantini / Panerai

Olympian has spent almost her entire life in the US. In 1913 and 1914, she won the famous Mackinac Race on Lake Michigan that starts out of Chicago.


She was rediscovered in the Chicago area in 2013 by Bruno Troublè, father of the Louis Vuitton Cup and skipper of the French America’s Cup campaigns of 1977, 1980 and 1983. Troublè supervised her restoration which was carried out by master shipwright John Andersen at Camden in Maine. In June 2014, Olympian was cargo-shipped from Newport to Genoa just in time to take part in and win her category at Le Vele d’Epoca di Imperia, Les Voiles de Saint Tropez and the Centenary Trophy reserved for boats of over 100 years of age.
