In 1965, Dick Carter entered the first boat he ever designed, the innovative 34-foot RABBIT, in the prestigious Fastnet Race, and against all odds won against a fleet of 151 racing boats.
He won again in 1969 in another even more innovative boat of his own design, RED ROOSTER.
Over the next decade he and his boats competed successfully with the best that American and European designers could produce in the competitive new golden age of Grand Prix yacht racing.
In RABBIT, TINA, RED ROOSTER, and many later boats, he and his loyal crew beat the world’s best sailors and yacht designers, and established ingenious technological concepts, and a new look, for racing yachts.
Years later his boats are still racing and cruising successfully all around the world, and his design innovations are seen as standard elements in the best racing sailboats of today.
