Today I like to share a book (170 pages) which was published by the author himself (as ebook) nine years ago in summer 2006.
LIGHT BRIGADE – the New Zealand school of Yacht design (subtitle: light displacement + multihull yacht evolution in the Southern Antipodes - 19th to 21st century)
As the title promises it gives a detailled view into the history
of Kiwi design. - I appreciate it to known the author Gary Baigent
(Auckland / New Zealand). He designed, built and sailed interesting trimarans, too. E.g. ...
Trimaran Groucho Marx
Tri Flash Harry
foiling Tri SID
(6.5 (l) x 7 (w) meters)
Gary is a very informatively sailor with experiences of more than four decades and a communicatively boat builder
, with a deep knowledge about many types of multihulls (catamarans same as trimarans).
