Re: Joe Adams, Yacht Designer, Murdered in Philipines
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.
As a side note to this tragedy, the boat referred to was ferro-cement - I daresay the only floating footpath ever to win a major sailing event (or ANY event for that matter). Speaks highly of his design abilities.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
