Dick Carter

Dick Carter began racing small boats on Cape Cod and came out of Yale’s Corinthian Sailing Club as a champion. He raced International 14s and Fireflys before turning his hand to yacht design despite no formal training. He was highly successful and radically innovative – some of his ideas can be found on virtually every yacht today. After a decade of success, he left his yacht design career as suddenly as he had arrived. Many of his sailing contemporaries thought he was dead.
