Thanks to OCH member Roger Rodibaugh for bringing this film about the classic schooner ELENA to our attention. She’s a replica of a 1911 Herreshoff-designed schooner of the same name.

This film seems to be more of a dramatization than a documentation of actual/factual events. To be clear, this is not an OCH production, it is by Elite Films, and seems it was made as a promotion for Elena’s charter business.

While we may take issues with some of the film, on balance we feel it provides access to a story that we all find fascinating — the retelling of the first race between the Herreshoff schooner yacht replicas Elena and Eleonora, along with some light history.
