Aage nielsen while at sparkman and stephens in new york. Olin stephens considered neilsen the best designer they had ever had - moreover stating that if he was ever going to have a yacht built for himself, he would most surely have wanted an aage nielsen design. Nielsen's manic attention to detail extended to his demanding the best from his builders and ciclon was no exception - and benefitting further from being the yard owner's own boat ! Launched in cuba in 1944 she was rarely off the podium - beating such legends as stormy weather and ticonderoga. Of course beautiful and fast is it time now to reintroduce her to her sisters ? History ciclon was built for senor remigo hernandorena in his own boat yard in havana, cuba. In october 1944, the year she was completed and launched, there was a tremendous hurricane or cyclone as the cubans called them, hence the name - which she has fully lived up to. Together with his captain, pipo bustamente, a veteran large yacht skipper, he sailed her to victory in many races. Her first major taste of victory was in 1947 in the st. Petersburg to havana race, set the pace for a most successful racing career. She won the sorc in 1947 and was second in 1948 when yachting really re started after the second world war. For the miami nassau race of 1948 the new york times' reported on ciclon beating stormy weather into 2nd place, revonoc third and ticonderoga finishing 5th - all on corrected time. For the next 10 years at least she continued to win or be placed - and this at a time when the fleet included some of the most fted ocean racers of the 20th century. Further details of her legendary racing career and victories are available to any interested parties and such was her racing prowess that the ford family commissioned a yawl based on ciclon's design no. 379. That yacht magic venture (design no. 379c) was built in dorchester, massachusetts bay in 1950 and she is still sailing on the us west coast. During the 1950s ciclon was also converted to a yawl rig probably because the cca rating rules at the time did not penalize the extra sail area generated by the mizzen and mizzen staysail. A large copy of the yawl rig sail plan is available.
