RAY HUNT STORY
History of Hunt Yachts
C. Raymond Hunt was an internationally known and respected helmsman and yacht designer. Who else could list in their credentials designing both sailboats and powerboats which won international championships and skippering boats of his own design to world championships? Ray Hunt was a respected helmsman. He won the Sears Cup twice, the first time when he was only 15. He sailed R-boats, Q-boats, 8-meters, and was a member of the afterguard on the J-boat “Yankee.” In 1963, he sailed his own design, “Chaje II,” to victory in the 5.5 World Championship. His apparent, uncanny knowledge of how to move a boat through the water forms a skill no tank test or formula can replicate.
