Regarding Rose Dorothea.
The schooner Rose Dorothea won the Lipton's Cup in 1907, despite breaking one of her masts, in the first and only Fisherman's Race, a 42-mile race from Provincetown to Gloucester to Boston. During World War I, in February 1917, a German U-Boat sank the schooner near the coast of Portugal, after allowing her crew to evacuate in lifeboats. A 66 ft. long replica of the Rose Dorothea is on display in the Provincetown Public Library.
