2016 Mai, Dutch QT Class Facebook: Got in contact with John Bonica (long live www.boatdesign.net!) who sailed 'FUN' (Laurie Davidson centerboarder, KZ-3003) at the 1976 Quarter Ton Cup in Corpus Christi and 'Selfwhiting' (Paul Whiting centerboarder, KZ-3524) at the 1978 Quarter Ton Cup in Japan. He send us the following mail: "Hi Hylke, 'Selfwhiting' was another center boarder and was designed for a light air series in Japan which indicated by the weather stats for 10 years was notoriously light air predicted. Whiting designed my boat for light air. How wrong they were! In the long race it blew 30-40 knots all the time and destroy. We blew our main and had to withdraw. Half the fleet withdrew, the rest had to shelter in the lee of an island and some of them were arrested by the military as they did not have passports and never made it back to base for a week. The advantage went to the Japan as they were able to fly the course in a helicopter ahead of time. The warm water caused a light fog which made it impossible to see the round the buoys Olympic course races. This was in the days before GPS and plotters. We had a radio direction finder plus charts and a hand bearing compass for navigation. The scariest part was having to cross the Tokyo shipping channel at night upwind which was 7 miles wide and with ships 1/4 mile apart and 10 lanes deep. Before radar and relying on our radar reflector to be (maybe) seen in rough seas among the wave clutter. 'Selfwhiting' was very fine in the bow, with twin spinnaker launchers up front and a pole launcher along the boom. As I said ... a light air fractional rig flier which did not do well in sea conditions and big air. This would have been an ideal series for the Farr 727. I don't know if there were any there. "
