Are you talking about Ted Turner's Lightnin' ? Built in 1971, and raced by Turner in the Admirals cup.
My Wife and her ex bought that boat and raced it a while, before converting it for cruising.
The boat sailed really well, and loved beating to windward in strong winds. It really moved along in light winds also.
We sold it about 5 years ago.
My favorite part of the boat was the Titanium 3 speed winches!
