Backers were: William Strawbridge (manager), Harold S. Vanderbilt, Patrick E. Haggerty, Burr Bartram. Crew: Rod and Olin Stephens and others for a total of 16. Mosbacher and Romagna designed the ship layout so that the crew was evenly distributed overall and most of the winches were below deck. Halsey Herreshoff suggested a lower boom which would improve the mainsail power upwind. Sailmaker: Ted Hood. America's Cup defender again in 1970. Redesigned by Britton Chance, Jr., who added 2' at the waterline and made her heavier.
