"Russ Kramer"

Captain Charlie Barr helms COLUMBIA during the stormy third, and decisive, America's Cup race against SHAMROCK, October 20, 1899. On board is designer Nat Herreshoff, syndicate head C. Oliver Iselin and his wife Hope, the first American woman to sail on a Cup defender.

Revolutionary among the forty-six-foot class with her spoon bow and cutaway forefoot, GLORIANA — dubbed “The Queen of the Waters” — went undefeated during her first season of 1891, and established Nathaniel Herreshoff — “The Wizard of Bristol” — as the preeminent designer of his time.
