Eleonora E in English Harbour, Antigua ahead of the RORC Caribbean Yacht Race

Built to the exact specifications of most famous racing schooners in the world, Eleonora E is a replica of the 1910 schooner, Westward that was launched at the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. in Bristol, Rhode Island, USA. The 49.5-metre Eleonora E we see today was built in 2002 by the Dutch classic sailing yacht experts at Graafship. As with her original sister, Eleonora E takes part in several yacht races each year and has become a legend in the classic racing scene.
