New record. The Resolute was a 28' One-Design racer by William Tripp Jr., commisioned by a group on Long Island Sound. (US). The first 12 were imported from Holland in 1955. (4 more the following year???). It was an active class for a number of years. But I had always wondered why today you never hear of single one that still exists. It turns out that nearly all were destroyed in a boatyard fire in 1974. Thanks to the William Tripp (III) Design office (Norwalk, CT) for telling the story as well as providing original drawings.
