    Dick Carter's book is available. Well worth the read.

    Is this the Figaro III?

    Figaro tries to combine several objectives for this One Design Class. Therefore, I can see that, the foils have to be retractable to park the boat, That hull integrity is better served with a foil starting at near deck level and that the objective is not to fly over the water.

    Merlin at 75 mph

    SloopJonB. I sailed very few races aboard C=M 66'. I have seen 27 and reported 17 1/2 average on a course during S.O.R.C. Many people have sailed the boat, they can give their version. In the Marblehead to Halifax race she crossed the finish line so early that there was no boat to fire the gun. The record was held for many, many years. On the smaller Desperado 57'. Speed over 25 knots was so common that they had a tee shirt labelled, the "25 knots club". Speed, very seldom achieved at the time for a monohull. Especially for an I.O.R. designed boat.

    Wooden boats thread

    Has been fitted with real accommodation. Far cry from the original Spartan interior.

    Formula 1 running on 2 wheels. Scary and phenomenal at the same time.
