Ted Hood

Sadly, Ted Hood has died. No more info yet..... A biographical memorial here: http://www.tedhood.com/ In my formative years racing ,he was an inspiration and someone I greatly admired.

Sad to hear of his loss. Ted designed some gorgeous yachts. At 86 though he lived a good long life and no question was proud of his accomplishments.

RIP
