The Dolphin 24 Birth Certificate


On a 'research' visit by your webmaster to the Sparkman & Stephens offices in New York in early 2007, this tissue copy of Olin Stephen's December 8, 1958 memo to Bill Shaw slipped out of the folds of a large blueprint in the S&S Dolphin 24 technical files. The others copied on the memo are DHS - Drake Sparkman, RS, Jr - Rod Stephens, GGW - Gil Wyland, S&S's Chief Engineer. The penciled number, 1497, is the assigned S&S design number for the Dolphin 24. MORC is Midget Ocean Racing Club

Birth Certificate


December 8, 2013. Upon reflection, and in the interest of literal accuracy, this document really might be better be titled the Dolphin 24 'Conception Certificate'? However, some meaning might be lost....Happy Certificate Day????.... And the webmaster is very aware of the administrative burden imposed on staff of tracking down and changing the innumerable website references to this document.
