The new AC 4.5 mini America's Cup boat

"The Mini 12s were born in the America's Cup frenzy around Newport in the early 80s, but were never designed as a one design, rather, they took the designs of famous 12 meters. Racing them in fleets involved a handicapping system of weighing both boat and skipper and equalizing all boat weights. The class faded, and now the only truly active Mini 12 fleet is at the Seattle Yacht Club."
