Re: Examples of cca era sailboats

Sparkman & Stephens Finisterre, designed in 1956 was the archetypal rule beater. Most of the ketch rigs with significant overhangs from that era were CCA boats as the rule penalized the main, but not the head sails or mizzensail. Most boats from the 50s and 60s were at least influenced by the rule- hence my other thread referring to them that way.

Ocean- that which covers 3/4 of a world made for man, who has no gills.
