Owner Details & History

Built according to the International First Rule.

1912 - 1915 Alfred W.G. Larsen - name Magda IX - home port: Christiania, Oslo (Norway). Magda was Larsen's wife. He was one of the most outstanding Norwegian owners and sailors. He used to have his boats designed by Fife but due to the results of Rollo in the 1911 season, he decided to desert Fife and asked Anker to design his Olympic boat. The choice was a winning one as Magda IX, having Anker as 'sailing master' on board, won the 1912 Stockholm Olympic Game winning two races out of three on Erna Signe and Heatherbell (under Finnish flag). In the same year she lost against Erna Signe at the Kiel Woche.
