Re: Kennedy 30 "Tiga"
That boat is most certainly a 'one-off'.. I remember when it first turned up at a regatta, 'Round Bowen, I think, probably close to 20 years back or more.. It was kind of radical at the time, not so much anymore.
Sorry, can't add anything re how well she was built, and don't recall seeing her out a lot after the first season or two... I suspect she may not have sailed to what was probably a fairly punitive rating...
