The international success of Bruce Farr and Russell Bowler is staggering in any terms, on any scale. This book tells the story of that success - how two New Zealanders from ordinary beginnings joined forces to change the shape of speed and became the most successful yacht designers the world has ever seen. Fierce competitors both on and off the water in their youth, and now partners, Bruce Farr and Russell Bowler have revolutionised small-boat sailing in New Zealand and internationally, winning world championships with their designs. At age 20, Farr designed the world's first light displacement keel-boat to compete successfully within the rating rules of international competition. Where other designers had tweaked and modified, Farr started again from scratch, and his boats were to revolutionise boat design. 437 pages with photos.
