5.5 AUS 24 "Kings Cross" - history - 17.11.2017 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Mark Lutowski reports:
She was designed for light airs of Acupulco however the Olympic Trials held here in Botany Bay were in heavy conditions where her original configuration was not best. They had one light race and Kings Cross won it by that far they didn't see who finished second!
She was modified to be better in moderate breeze but she has aways been terrific in the light airs.
Maybe a perfect lake boat!

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.
