50Season Champions Part Two

We took a little break from our Season Champions series of features to spend two weeks sailing down the coast in the Baja Ha-Ha. This month we pick up where we left off in our November issue.

56Boat of the Month: Millimeter

The Millimeter is a one-design, one-person, single-hull racing yacht, related to the Mini-12 and the slightly longer International 2.4mR. She is a Bay Area legend, with an origin story circa 1982, when Sven Svendsen imported a 12-ft boat from Germany and put it on display at a boat show just south of San Francisco.
