Letter From Eric Moe-Serendipity Yachts

Serendipity was my father,[Bob Moe]'s company. I spent many hours working on that boat [Wings] and it was the first to launch from San Rafael in Richmond. In the last week it was 7 X 24. There was a groove on the Richmond bridge for years from the trailer dragging on the delivery. First race was a Wednesday beercan race out of Point Richmond. I will never forget that experience. In the Big Boat Series, my job was trimming the running backs (loading up in the lulls to undbend the mast and add draft to the main). I crewed on Sioc in the 1980 Transpac and sailed with Lowell and Danny North on Moonshadow in the Big Boat Series. I was going through the archives and found the original IOR measurement certificate from 1979. Eric Moe some images and video:

A big thanks to Richard at the RB Sailing Blog for posting a video of the 1983 SORC.  It chronicles, amongst all the battles, Scarlet O'Hara's overall SORC win that year.  Fame received a (dis)honorable mention for dropping her rig in the St. Petersburg to Ft. Lauderdale Race.

Be sure to check out the RB Sailing Blog too, the best IOR resource out there so far.
