LEARN MOREABOUT THE TORNADO

The Tornado was designed  in 1967 by Rodney March from the Isle of Sheppey, England, specifically to be the Olympic Class catamaran. It easily defeated the other challengers in a selection event in England in the same year, and sailed its first Olympics in 1976. Since then, with constant refinement of underwater shapes, construction techniques, and sail plan, the boat has continued to go faster and faster. In spite of the best efforts of many other designers and builders worldwide, the Tornado still reigns supreme as the fastest production catamaran in the world. It is a showplace for both the skill of the sailors and for the technology for a production boat.
