A Newport 29 cruiser. One of three survivors of four originally built, she is a big sister to Herreshoff’s famed Alerion. Raced for nearly a century, she has perhaps won more trophies than any other boat in American yachting history. Raced in the Med 2006-2008, she came in first at Palma de Mallorca in the XXII Trofeo Almirante Conde de Barcelona regatta, in the Vintage Class and was first overall in her group. Today, Dolphin instructs the racing sailors of the International Sail Training program at the Oakcliff Sailing Center, Oyster Bay, New York. In June 2011, Shelter Island Yacht Club honored her on the occasion of their 125th Anniversary. Maintained and stored in-water at Wooden Boatworks docks in Greenport, NY.
