Bera, a 1922 Johan Anker masterpiece, won gold at the 1924 Olympics and continued with a long and successful racing career. She ended up on Lake Constance in Germany, where at the time only gaff rigged 8-Metres were found. To enable her to compete she was converted to gaff rig. Last winter she was converted back to her original rig configuration of the 1924 Olympics and with Emily, the silver medallist of the 1924 Olympics moving to Lake Constance old rivals will soon meet again.
