Re: Remembering Bill Tripp

I have a columbia 26 mk2. Too bad there was nothing about this boat. It does however have all the characteristics of a typical Tripp design. Looks like it sails like a pig and just glides through the water. A smart young rigger to be tweaked out this boat for racing because of the under rating on it, won a lot of races all the riggers in town know my boat well. He went on to work teaching out boats for americas cup so he definitely knew what he was doing in picking this boat as his first project.
