A little tale from back in the day. Can anyone speak to the veracity of this one?
This is John Kilroy’s Farr 1 Ton "Scalawag" packed up and headed home. My recollection is that shortly before the start of the middle distance race of the ’79 1 Ton worlds in Newport, her rig came down in a light to moderate breeze. Inspection indicated that her cap shrouds had been modified with a hack saw the evening before the race and covered by the shroud boots.
