Smile of champions
Mort Lund
November 17, 1958
All this summer, while the eyes of the sports-minded were focused on the drama of the America's Cup, the nation's small-boat skippers, class-boat enthusiasts like the smiling champions shown on these pages, carried on the busiest sailing season to date. Class boats are, by definition, boats of a kind, and wherever two or three boats of a class are gathered together, a sail-off will soon follow. Multiply this by several thousand and you have a national pattern of sail-offs that start early in the season to pick the best of the class in every yacht club, the best of the class in every district and, finally, the best sailor in each class in the country.
