    Tara is just one of those rare occasions. She was built as a custom racer for John “Don”
    McNamara and designed by Bill Luders.
    Don McNamara was a bronze Olympian in 5.5 meters, co-captained the 12 meter
    “Nefertitti”, and campaigned “Tara” in the SORC. He knew what he wanted in a racing boat.
    “Tara” is a beautiful example of the CCA rule of the sixties and still sailing and breaking
    hearts today.
    Comfortable on the race course, but also a comfortable cruising boat, An adaptive yawl rig
    makes her capable of easy handling with a shorthanded crew.
