Interesting that the crew size seems to have increased over time. The 1974 boats seem to have 5 or 6 crew, the 1986 lot 7 or 8, and the 2019 have 10 or so. Still 2 in front of the mast, but need more grinders, and people to tend to running backstays that weren't present in the 1974 fleet?
Fat on the rail mostly I think. The 2019 boats are 4 foot bigger as well.
