The timber boat was from Yugoslavia, and was never finished. The Russian boats were both carbon.Did they actually have merch? If so, absolutely!
And if you can find any merch from 1995 (?) Russian Challenge when they tried to build a timber IACC you are RICH! :lol:
One was built in an old missile factory, and had the most beautiful titanium mast fittings I had ever seen, although they were on an agricultural, overweight carbon mast. At one point, memorabilia from the Russian team representing the Leningrad Yacht Club was available (It was still called Leningrad Yacht Club in 1992, not St. Petersburg Yacht Club).
I had one of their team jackets, which was cool. Unfortunately, I gave it to to my rabidly anti-Communist brother-in-law as a joke. I suspect he burned it. Wish I had it now!
