The Six Metre - 100 Years of Racing

The Six Metre - 100 Years of Racing


Pekka Barck and Tim Street
Publisher: Littorale

Ref: BKS000302

The Six Metre – 100 Years of Racing is believed to be the first full book on Six Metre yachts in English ever published. Many thousands of sailors have enjoyed these yachts during the past century. More than 1200 Six Metres have been built and almost all of them were unique designs, built to win races. Today more than one third of them are known to still exist and many have been beautifully restored. It is not a hyperbole to say that the class is today more vigorous than ever with more than 300 boats believed to be in racing trim.

During an honourable 100 year history a lot has happened – disaster and sensation, storm and calm, war and reconciliation, recession and expansion. Put simply this is the History of the Six Metres.

The book has six main chapters:
THE RULE: the rules and the development of the class
RACING: reports on all the major trophies for Six Metres
DESIGNERS: a record of most of the important designers
YACHTS: stories of eight selected yachts
COUNTRIES: histories of the Six Metre by country
APPENDIXES: a register of all yachts built, together with the current fl eets and yachts
