English: The Rose Dorothea was one of the famous “Indian Head” schooners designed by Thomas McManus and built at the Tarr & James Shipyard in Essex, MA in 1905. She was 108.7 feet long, weighed 108 tons and had a crew of 26 men.

In August 1907, a cup was offered by Sir Thomas Lipton for a 42-mile Fishermen’s Race in Massachusetts Bay from Provincetown to Gloucester to Boston. Despite losing her foretopmast in the final leg of the race, the Rose Dorothea, with her Portuguese crew from Provincetown, won the race by 2 1/2 minutes.

She was was sold in 1916 to a Newfoundland company that used her to ferry salt and other supplies to Portugal. In February 1917, a German U-Boat submarine surfaced next to the schooner as she neared the coast of Lisbon, and then, after allowing her crew to evacuate in lifeboats, sank her.[1]
