1903, the sleek, black, steel-hulled Atlantic not
only won the prestigious trans-Atlantic race, she
set a record for a sailing vessel, unbeaten until
1980, of 12 days, 4 hours, 1 minute and 19 seconds.
Powered by steam auxiliary engine, she sported a
special low-drag propeller and a folding funnel,
both of which were removed for racing.
