How things change!

Yesterday I was flicking through an old picture book on Sailing (Yachts by AK Beken) published in 1960, and came across this photo of Columbia - the challenger and winner or the America's Cup in 1958. Today there is news on the launch of the new italian team's Capitalia challenger ITA99 being launched over the weekend and also the New German challenger GER89 which has been unveiled over the weekend at the Dusseldorf Boat Show. And late last week the Luna Rossa challenger ITA94 was launched in Valencia
The designs have come a long way!
