Vessel history
Once, off the east coast of Ireland, she logged 16 knots over a measured course of 100 miles from light to light; and in 1902 under similar conditions off the Hebrides she made the same speed over a slightly shorter distance. This pace is probably the greatest ever attained by any ship carrying full sail in a moderate breeze.
