Agustina Sailed The River Plate
Built as Lula, by 1911 this tiny boat was stationed in Buenos Aires. By 1923 she had been renamed Agustina, a feminine version of the name Augustine, popular in Argentina. I have no information about her after 1924. However, for more information about Argentine Yachting in 1922, and three Harrison Butler yachts stationed there in the 1920s, visit the Pengüino archive.
