Dame Pattie 1967

In 1966-67, the Australians had only their own technology to count on. The “country of origin” clause was strictly enforced by the NYYC. As a result, Dame Pattie was fully designed and built in Australia, which, at the time was an additional challenge for the designer, Warwick J. Hood.

In the tests, Dame Pattie, nevertheless beat Gretel I, who had benefitted from American technology. But Dame Pattie was powerless against Intrepid.

Thomas Octave Murdoch Sopwith , Shamrock V's owner ( he acquired her in 1932 ), decided to enter the fray. He ordered a new J Class from Charles E. Nicholson, Endeavour. Nicholson designed his most fabulous challenger, with a very elegant shape and real speed capacities.

The fifteenth challenge of the America's Cup was quite a paradox: the faster yacht was beaten by the slower but better sailed yacht. In fact, with Rainbow, the Americans were saved solely due to her tactical sense and a lot of luck.

Endeavour layed down for years in the USA, without care. She was rescued by Elizabeth Meyer, of Newport, RI. Today after a $ 10,000,000 restoration, she is one of the most breathtaking sights on the water. To take helm of such a boat is to experience pure power, grace and speed.
