Dick Carlson and Medea, the first boat built to the Midget Ocean Racing Club (MORC) Rule  

September 5, 2017. We got the following info over the transom about Medea, the first boat built to the MORC rule (the Cutlass design). Her designer, Dick Carlson, was one of the founders of MORC and passed away on November 24, 2014. Click here to see his obituary in the local paper, the East Hampton Star.

Excerpt from the East Hampton Star

"His best-known and most controversial design was called Cutlass, a 23-foot, 7-inch sloop (boat's name was Medea) with a unique reverse shear and transom. He would tell purchasers that he would buy a Cutlass back if they didn’t win half their races. No one ever took him up on it, his family said, and many clients became lifelong friends."

Excerpt from Bill Shaw's Chapter XIII in Racing at Sea
