Dick Carter: Yacht Designer In the Golden Age
Fastnet, Force 10, A Berth to Bermuda, For years I have said that sailboat racing is like malaria,” writes Dick Carter in his stimulating memoir. “You never get rid of it.” “ Put such a mind in a sailboat and there's no telling what will happen. called Dick the “mystery man in American yachting.”A young businessman and Yale graduate from inland New Hampshire who first sailed on a small lake, he transformed himself through a spectacular act of will into a brilliant, daring yacht racer and designer. He changed his sport, creating new types of boats and winning big races while surviving daring voyages. “Rabbit, but to enter the high-tech, cutting-edge, elite regattas run by the Royal Yacht Squadron and the Royal Ocean Racing Club, Dick Carter surprised everybody by winning the prestigious Fastnet Race. Over the next decade dominated the intensely competitive new golden age of Grand Prix yacht racing, sometimes in American waters but mostly in the windy, rough, cold English Channel and the North Sea. In Intrepid (designed by Olin Stephens, the world's most successful yacht designer) sported an important new feature that Dick had developed on his own, the trim tab.

An Inexplicable Attraction: My Fifty Years of Ocean
Sailing well into his eighties, Captain Eric Forsyth shows in his book, An Inexplicable Attraction: My Fifty Years of Ocean Sailing, that age need not be a barrier to an adventurous retirement. His love of ocean sailing was ignited in 1964 when he crossed the Atlantic with his wife, Edith, crewing aboard a friend’s 46-foot boat. For more than fifty years, mostly aboard his sturdy cutter Fiona, Forsyth has cruised the oceans of the world, making voyages that included two circumnavigations of the globe, cruises through the Northwest Passage and to the Baltic, and several excursions to both the Arctic and Antarctic. His stories will appeal to all sailors, whether active or armchair, and to travel buffs with a penchant for remote places and their histories.On a more serious side, Forsyth has seen many countries that he visited over the decades change fromlanguorous oligarchies to developing democracies with a thriving middle class. Like the U.S., they have aprofligate appetite for fossil fuel, which is not a sustainable resource in the long run. He suggests ways ofbringing attention to this global problem.Captain Forsyth has been honored by fellow sailors with the Seven Seas Award from the Seven Seas CruisingAssociation, and the Blue Water Medal, given annually by the Crui...

Sailing Yachts: The Masters of Elegance and
Without having to rely on the power of engines, sailing yachts glide effortlessly through the waves, fulfilling dreams of freedom, adventure, luxury or relaxation. Next to the challenges posed by using materials and spatial concepts that must withstand the forces of wind and water, designers and shipyards must also creatively comply with the increasingly extravagant wishes of the owners. The most important current trend is the demand for extreme flexibility in terms of spaces and fittings that turn the time spent on board into a very special experience – such as a cockpit table that converts into a sun bed with a simple twist of the hand, or into an inviting lounge at the push of a button. This book presents a selection of 40 sailing yachts constituting the entire range of available models of this type of boat – from racers to cruisers, and from the seven-meter-long maritime design gem to the luxury-class mega-yacht with a length of more than 100 meters.
