Announced in 1912, the Schneider Trophy captivated both sides of the Atlantic with a series of glamorous air races between seaplanes held in Monaco, the Venice Lido, the Solent, or Chesapeake Bay. It pitted nation against nation, creating rivalries between aircraft designers—notably, Reginald Mitchell and Mario Castoldi.
