12-Meter Heaven…

September 16, 2005

Say what you will about displacement (heavy) and speed (slow), you have to admit that the 12-meter design is a timeless classic that always looks good and evokes the best of sailing. The NYYC has managed to lure at least 17 of them, from early classics like Northern Light, to modern champions like Courageous, to a world championship that is making the waters off Newport look spectacular. You can follow the action and results here. Check it out, and watch the drool…
