HISTOIRE DE ALARM ET FICHE TECH.

Catégorie : ALARM

The Alarm winning the Ladies Challenge Cup. At Cowes Augt. 1830Comme le cotre Arrow, Alarm a été conçu et construit par Joseph Weld. Il a été lancé au chantier Inman le 10 mai 1830. Il a coûté £20,000 (£1.10m en 2003) mais il surpassait tous les autres cotres en terme de tonnage et de développement.
Alarm a gagné la King's Cup en 1830 battant Miranda de Mr Maxse, puis en 1831 contre Louisa de Lord Belfast et en 1832 contre Arundel du Duc de Norfolk...

... Lord Belfast prit sa vengeance en 1831 dans une autre régate pour 1000 guinées.

En 1833, Alarm rencontre Waterwitch, le nouveau yacht de Lord Belfast et, malgré une victoire de plus de 34 minutes, il sera disqualifié, comme noté dans les registres du Royal Yacht Squadron, "à la suite de la malheureuse habitude de M. Weld de ne pas respecter la priorité du tribord amure".

Alarm (ci-dessous dans sa forme originale) a été agrandi en 1852. Probablement en raison de l'influence de l'America, Joseph Weld l'a allongé de 20 pied à l'étrave et gréé en goélette. Son tonnage est passé à 248 tonnes.
