Moxie in the Azores

Moxie (book, film) by Philip S. Weld

"For this, his third attempt at the OSTAR, Weld had Dick Newick design him the trimaran Moxie. In design, construction and in every piece of equipment Moxie was built to win. Phil Weld knew what it took to race across the Atlantic - the boat and the man were made for each other."

"By breaking the barriers of both performance and acceptance, Dick Newick can be called the Chuck Yeager of multihulls"
-- Jim Brown, Wooden Boat magazine, May 2008

article by Steve Callahan
Professional Boatbuilder Magazine #122, December/January 2010

"The venerable Dick Newick, a pioneer in sailing multihulls, continues to deliver designs whose simplicity and grace, even at rest, are evocative of seabirds. His fast, safe, oceanĚproven multihulls can truly be said to have been ahead of their time."
