1901 Columbia America's Cup Winner

Columbia was an American racing yacht built in 1899 for the America's Cup races. She was the defender of the tenth America's Cup race that same year against British challenger Shamrock as well as the defender of the eleventh America's Cup race in 1901 against British challenger, Shamrock II. She was the first vessel to win the trophy twice in a row (a record not equaled until Intrepid's back-to-back wins in 1967 and 1970) (Wikipedia)

The tranquil simplicity of our America's Cup yacht models capture the spirit of classic sailing ponds. Le Lac in the Bois de Boulogne. The Serpentine in Hyde Park. The boat pond in Central Park N.Y. Classic sepia photographs of boater hatted Dads launching their sons' toy boats into dark waters, hoping for a speedy return. Beach visits with tin metal-pails to collect shells and sand. A boat model to sail the rippled ocean water between high and low tide. They leave cherished memories of both tranquil and exciting moments.
