Team Spot (Barney Harris/Jesse Falsone) being chased by ??? and Bill Pevear/Jan Aase in 6821 (6821 was built in 1977 or '78!)

Down the run - sailing hot angles with the crew on the wire.

Ethan Bixby and Cam Lewis racing Lindsay 7093. This team won the 1981 505 Worlds in the same boat. Cam and Gary Knapp won the '82 Worlds in this boat too. Original hull, original foils, original finish on the woodwork.. sort of a time machine...
