"This is a famous race boat, a Santa Cruz 50 built by Bill Lee," said the Mighty one's owner, Gary Boyd, who was aboard with his friend, Pete Wiley. "Hal Roth actually sailed this boat around the world by himself in the BOC Challenge. She has a helluva history." Having covered several BOC events, I'd been aboard the boat, then called Sebago, before the race start in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1990. Boyd wasn't kidding about her famous pedigree.
