The New York Yacht Club’s intention was for a yacht that could cruise comfortably with a small crew – with racing almost a secondary consideration. The New York 50s and 70s – even then were deemed too expensive to run but they wanted something larger than the NY 30, noting that it is of course the waterline length that defined these marques. Herreschoff’s genius created a yacht so tough and seaworthy the class was to win two Bermuda Races in short order – enough to earn the class its soubriquet “The Fighting Forties”.
ROWDY’s authenticity is impressive and her condition hard to fault. While under her current owner this yacht has indeed dominated her class at classic regattas. It is well worth noting however that her sister RUGOSA in 2001cruised 26,000 miles to attend the Americas Cup Jubilee. The Wizard of Bristol thus delivered exactly what the Club had wanted, moreover demonstrating the total versatility of her design – one of very few as capable from any era.
