Shark--A 15 ft Racing Sloop

  • Availability: In Stock

by Fred W. Schnur

"Shark," though only fifteen feet long, is every inch a yacht. She was designed for sailing in very rough water with quite a bit of breeze, yet the craft will perform well in light airs. Several of the most modern features of the yachting world are incorporated into the design. The rig is high and narrow, with light hollow mast and a rigid tee boom. The permanent backstay adds the nth degree of stiffness to the rigging. With the full length battens in the sail as advocated by leading racing men, maximum efficiency and speed are to be had, along with comfort and safety.
