Finisterre

Finisterre was designed and built in 1954 for Carleton Mitchell for single-handed sailing and cruising, She exceeded her owner’s expectation and astounded the yachting world by winning the Bermuda race three consecutive times, in 1956, 1958 and 1960.  Her victory in 1956 was the first ever by the smallest boat and her design turned the trend back to smaller, beamy centerboard boats as evidenced in the 1958 Bermuda race where a 111 boat fleet was jammed with Finisterre-type boat. Unlike many legends in the past Finisterre still races and cruises.
