Built in 1982 by Chris Oniall, on a design by Joubert and Nivelt, at Olympic in Lavrio she was the second Atalanti team half-toner. She is the only yacht to win a World Championship eleven years apart, in 1982 and 1993.
These were the first sailors from Greece to race offshore boats at an international level. By the time most of them retired to local coastal racing they had brought back more medals in 15 years than anyone in the previous 60. This is one of the sails every other competing boat would hate. Whenever it was hoisted you would sigh knowing that this boat would just zoom past shortly.
