    Not sure where to post this as it's speedsailing, but all boats featured are multis; moderator may wish to move somewhere else. Features Crossbow amongst others:

    Love these films!

    This one from 1977 is also interesting.

    Wouldn't it be nice if there was some kind of event where the survivors from this era could be demonstrated along with Vestas Sailrocket and every contender in between?
