Reflecting on a small period in the history of Ocean Racing and the ‘Ton Cup’ World Championships, during the 1970’s and 1980’s I was pleased to gift a Half Model of one of my very successful ‘Half Tonners’ “Silver Shamrock” to Matthew Cote of Milltown Marina in Vancouver BC. “Silver Shamrock” was the Winner of the Half Ton Cup in Italy, 1976 an Irish entry skippered by Harold Cudmore.
This design was developed for the ‘Club Shamrock’ Series Production by the South Coast Boatyard and boats sold all over Europe. American author Stuart Woods owned “Golden Harp” and completed the Trans Atlantic SingleHanded Race aboard her.
