Bob Miller also known as Ben Lexcen - 18.02.2009 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Bob Miller (9th March 1936 - 1st May 1988) changed his name in the mid 70's to Ben Lexcen to avoid confusion with his former company. He is most famous for the winged keel design applied to Australia II which, in 1983, became the first non-American yacht to win the prestigious America's Cup in 132 years.
