1962 Flying Dutchman Worlds, St.Pete, FL

Recommended Posts

Trapeze #160, JAN-2008, contained a number of recently unearthed images of this famous regatta.

Here are few more that didn't fit into the issue.

 

A starting line; Elvstrom gestures as Tasker rounds a mark ahead; Harry Sindle paddling in;

Ben ver Hagen gets a hand (and a great view of the 1962 St.Petesburg sky line, consisting of nothing but the Ponce de Leon hotel); Conrad Gulcher - father of the FD; the South Africans Robin Standing and John Sully; the Russians; Fogh's bent spreader; a wooden FD always draws a crowd.
