Re: Examples of cca era sailboats
The Peason 35, Bristol 34, Bristol35, Cal 40, Hinkley Bermuda 40, Allied Seabreeze 35 are a few. The era was the most prolific in history, so there are many more. The IOR came after and made some of the worst and most dangerous boats in history. It wasn't until the early 1990s that those design flaws finally ran their course and more seaworthy boats began emerging again. Say what you want about CCA era boats, but they didn't result in Fastnet type disasters.
