Mini-650 racing yacht design - latest news

The table below will be extended as new yacht design information becomes available, with the most recent announcements added to the top.
Hopefully, in some time this table will serve as a historic overview of how this Mini-650 racing yacht design project came into being. ;)
Please note that not every single step along the way to a complete Mini650 racing yacht will be added to this list.
