As a long ago participant in the 1979 Admirals Cup and Fastnet Race I really enjoyed the picture of Ragamuffin under spinnaker and blooper in my latest copy of Sailing World. The caption describes this picture as being from the magazine's archives, but I can't seem to find a way to browse these archives for other pictures from the same era. Is this part of history open to us or only to the staff of Sailing World? Any help here would be appreciated.
Glad you enjoyed it! We've been having fun going back through our archives this year ...

We're also in the process of scanning all 50 years of the magazine into digital format. Stay tuned to our website for more!
