DORADE Design No. 7 Matt Brooks’ 52ft yawl, Dorade, won the Fastnet Race in 1931 & 1933. Designed in 1929 by Olin Stephens of Sparkman & Stephens and built 1929–1930 by the Minneford Yacht Yard in City Island, New York. Olin Stephens was skipper through 1932 when he handed the boat to his brother, Rod Stephens. Led by Rod, Dorade sailed to victory in the 1932 Bermuda Race. Dorade sailed to Cowes, winning the Fastnet Race. The victory was of substantial significance given the unusually severe weather. Dorade was completely restored in 1997 in Argentario, Italy.
DORADE ha portato molte innovazioni come le maniche a vento montate sul ponte - da allora in poi noti come "dorades".
