QUOTE-UNQUOTE: No yacht in the long history of the sport has won more of the world’s major races, nor covered more offshore racing miles, than DORADE. She has collected first place trophies for the Fastnet Race out of England, the Bermuda race, the Transpacific Race between Los Angeles and Hawaii plus many more.
All success, spanning more than eight decades, has come in the northern hemisphere, so DORADE’s owners, Matt Brooks and Pam Rorke Levy, have now decided it is time to give their yacht the chance to be a winner in southern hemisphere events.
[Matt and Pam are esteemed members of St Francis YC and New York YC, and are avid supporters of the sport on both coasts. –TFE]
