Once lost out a second place finish to a TEAL at the '80 or '81 Newport Classic Yacht Regatta by a very small margin. Wondering if that was the one. As I recall she was sloop rigged of that length, with a dark hull. Very fine boat. Could it be the same?

It is possible Todd. I am actually doing this research for an older friend, so I don't know all the details. At the time it was sold, it had a white hull. One note that you may remember - the boat in question has a very small transom. Does that ring a bell? Thanks for responding.

Yup, small sweet butt, had a good view of it in that race. I do recall it was sailed by a group of older sailors who were quite composed and relaxed in the stiff breeze. They seemed to know their boat.
