I helped put WINGS together right before the 1979 Transpac. We just made the start on July 4th. did the delivery while still bolting down gear and wiring electronics.

1979 was a light year with a couple of day becalmed in mid-pacific. I sailed on Mamie a Carter 42- 2 Ton that was light years behind this boat in design. Mamie was 5th ans wings was second.

the serendipity was a breakthrough boat with much better up and down wind characteristics.

Doug had that era figured nicely.
