Trimaran légendaire aux performances toujours actuelles. Un dessin unique une construction rare et un entretien-maintenance-évolution à la hauteur d’un tel multicoques d’exception.

This Solo Racer was designed for Fred Ball by Dick Newick in 1985.  Original construction drawings by Mr. Newick are available and remain with the vessel.  Her hulls were built by Alain Guidon and finished in Glen Arbor Michigan.  She was launched in Good Harbor Bay on Lake Michigan in 1987.  Her Gougeon Brothers designed wing mast, windshield, deck hardware and systems where completed by VanDam Woodcraft in Harbor Springs Michigan.  Her Launch took place in June of 1987.
Lucky Strike has always been on the Great Lakes and is only  a 2 owners boat.  She has been well  maintained and improved over the years and has a fine race record.  In the year 2014 alone she was first in class in both Chicago and Bayview Mackinac races.  She corrected first in class in the Bayview race and second in the Chicago race.  She has won the Marty Reick Trophy three times and the Super Mac and many other races over the years both crewed and solo.
