Owner Details & History

Built according to International First Rule

1911 Mads Wiel - name: ROLLO - home port: Fredrikshald (Norway). In 1911 she attended Cowes week winning out of 7 entries, 4 firsts and 1 third. She also attended the first European Week at Cowes. "In this class we had the one outstanding victory of the regatta, Rollo. Mr. Anker's yacht of his own design and building is no slouch. With large body and more sail than the others, she is a fine type of boat, and her designer sailed her with great ability. Mr McIver set his teeth in a long cigar, and he had Mylne with him in the cockpit; but neither Javotte, Alachie, nor Ierne could hold the Norseman with her black hull and red-jerseyed crew." (Yachting Monthly, Sept. 1911). At the celebration dinner, the President of the Royal Yacht Squadron greeted Anker and his crew with: "Our Norwegian friends have built their own boat, have sailed across the North Sea, manned by their own crew. They arrived here safe and sound and they have now won nearly all the first prizes in the races. That is what I call sport."
