NOTES
Although originally offered from Prout as a kit, (FG hulls and ply bridgedeck) the SHEARWATER III is considered a 'Restricted Development Class'.
Hull shape and size, total sail area and height are the primary restrictions.
Twin trapezes permitted.
Molds are owned by the class.
Spinnaker introduced in 1972.
