Gitana: One Hundred and Forty Years of High Performance Yachting

by Poirier, Diane Elisabeth

CAD $75.00 CAD $19.99

The Rothschild family’s fleet of racing yachts have all been named Gitana. Their history begins on the shores of Lake Geneva, in 1876, with the christening of the first Gitana, a schooner, and traces the line of beautiful vessels to today’s Baron Benjamin de Rothschild and his Gitana Team, who participate in major international races. The tale interweaves technological innovation with a family’s passion for excellence, aesthetics, and performance. Gorgeous archival photographs, drawings, plans, and first-person accounts of yacht races bring the Rothschilds’ quest for distinction to life.
