Joe Adams, Yacht Designer, Murdered in Philipines

Just heard this myself, from here. A sad and unnecessarily disturbing event.

Mr Adams had his throat slashed and his body was found by his gardener, according to Philippines news website abc-cbnnews.com.

Mr Adams, 81, who designed the 1973 record-breaking Sydney-Hobart line honours winner Helsal, was a high-profile figure within the Australian yachting community.
