The Fabulous 40s
The first 15 years of the Farr 40 International One-Design Class
Compiled by Bob Fisher
£50 + postage and packing
The Farr 40 One-design class is unique within the world of offshore yacht racing, having been a pathfinder during a period of great change within the sport. The secret to its success is the fact that the class is owner driven quite literally. Owners - all amateur helmsmen - are alone in having their hands on the helm during class racing. The success of this concept is unparalleled. 152 yachts are now spread across 19 Countries. This lavishly illustrated coffee table book captures the close racing and comradeship between crews racing in many of the best locations around the world. This is a book for all yacht race enthusiasts and lists the results of all the world championships as well as owners and their yachts.
