WEALD II TRANSATLANTIC RACE 1975
THE TRANSATLANTIC RACE OF 1975 STARTED IN NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND FINISHING IN COWES IOW. WEALD WAS A SWAN 48 DESIGNED BY S&S. A BOAT IN MY OPINION THAT WAS FASTER THAN “CARINA” IN THAT ERA.
THIS WAS ONE OF 9 TRANSATLANTIC RACES I HAVE COMPETED IN. EACH WITH IT’S OWN SPECIAL MEMORIES. ADDITIONALLY AN EXCEPTIONAL PRIVILEGE TO COMMUNE WITH NATURE IN A WAY PERMITTED TO ONLY A FEW.
