5.5 US-42 "Gamble" - in 1963 - 03.08.2017 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Franz Schneider reports: "...I sailed in the 1963 5.5 Nationals and Worlds at Seawanhaka on "Gamble", a 5.5 that Sheronas owned. Pete Masterson (one of Ernie Fay’s usual crew) skippered in one series, and Andy Schoettle (a guy who had done a lot of 5.5 racing) skippered in the other series. "Gamble" was a former Ecuadorian 5.5 designed by Arvin Laurin (who also designed Complex for Britt’s father when he won the gold medal in 1952).
