Built in 1982 by Chris Oniall at Olympic Yachts in Lavrion, on a design by Joubert and Nivelt, she was the second half-toner the sailing team bought. She is the only half-toner to win a World Championship eleven years apart, in 1982 and 1993. The former head coach of Emirates Team New Zealand and a multiple Transpac winner first cut their teeth trimming this sail.
