Speaking of Dick Carter, the inventor of modern boats, the Sporting Club
Tuesday, December 10 Sporting Club Carpi will host the presentation of the book- Autobiography of Dick Carter, the famous American designer yacht, which will be over the phone from the United States.
Raffaello Porro StudioRPR, communications and business development agency of Carpi, conducts the interview with Francesco Gandolfi, curator of the Italian edition published by Giorgio Nada Editore.
You do not need to be passionate about sailing and yacht design to be fascinated by the life of Dick Carter, a designer who has amazed not only the sailing world with his projects, but the entire world that has presumed dead for five years until Francesco Gandolfi has not tracked down with the help of Lionello Gasparini, the man who sold and promoted the Carter hulls in Italy.
Gandolfi as well as being the editor of the autobiography of Dick Carter, is owner of the Rabbit, the boat designed by Carter, who won the Fastnet Race, reaching, against all odds, the first of 151 boats. In the ten years that followed Dick and its boats have competed successfully with what the best American and European designers have produced in what was the most competitive that new golden age of sailing competitions at the highest level. All the technical and sporting history of this talented designer is contained in this book, published by Giorgio Nada Editore. In addition to the direct testimony of the protagonist, this autobiography uses rare archive images, in color and in black and white, documenting the golden age of ocean races
There is therefore best story of Dick Carter if no one told by Gandolfi, successful sailor and owner of Rabbit, the Revolutionary Carter designed sailing boat which won the Fastnet Race of 1965, reaching, against all odds, the first of 151 boats.
