Dick Carter - Yacht Designer
In 1965 Dick Carter entered Rabbit, the first boat he had ever designed into that year's classic Fastnet race – And Won! Two years later, racing Red Rooster, an even more innovative boat, he won the Race again, his centreboarder finishing top boat in the Admiral's Cup to lift the American team to overall victory!
Over the next decade, Carter and his yachts dominated across the world, winning successive One Ton Cups, the Half Ton Cup, Southern Cross series, Cape/Rio race, Middle Sea Race and the Bermuda Race.
As John Rousmaniere writes in his Introduction: "This story of the underdog sailor taking on the world and conquering it, is often surprising, roundly entertaining, inspiring and instructive."
Rodney Pattisson's autobiography is an explosive commentary, on a lifetime of remarkable achievements in an international sport that Rodney made his own. His story will shock, amaze and inspire not just today's young sailors looking to realise their own dreams, but every sportsman and woman around the world
