Victory ’83, Sailing to Windward

Victory '83, Sailing to Windward

Victory ’83, is a British 12 Metre, that came to the US to race in the 1983 America’s Cup in Newport, RI. In 2007 a new Owner found it abandoned in the South of France and brought it back to Newport. It got a new cockpit, new mast, winches, hardware, a new paint job, sails and running rigging. It was beginning to race again, but was missing a great many go-fast systems. They hired me in 2009 to finish it off and stay racing. I have stayed with them to this day.

We have won the last four (4) North American Championships. In 2013 we won with seven (7) firsts.
