Herreshoff's early multihull Amaryllis
(1876) should have moved heaven and earth -- and would have, had the reactionary fools of the yawt-ting set not reacted so violently to it.
Modern, much?!?! After the design's suppression, it really wasn't until Tabarly's Pen Duick IV
that ocean-racing multis stormed back to the fore.
Guess what Tabarly was working on in 1976?
Could be the next paradigm shift.
