History: Built to compete in the 1979 World Cup in Seattle. Frenzy is a very low displacement boat made to the extremes of the rule. She is constructed of double planked Port Orford cedar laid in epoxy over oak frames, and very strong. Her deck is clear finished over cedar strips, fiberglass and epoxy. Frenzy went to the 1983 Worlds in Newport, CA, where she showed great speed in the extreme conditions: light air and heavy air. Former owner Eric Jespersen and his crew did very well with the boat, winning the 2003 and 2004 Lipton Cups, the 2004 North Americans, and the 2005 King Olav V Cup. Rodger Phillips started out his tenure with a bang, winning the 2006 Sir Thomas Lipton Cup, 2008 North American Championships, and 2014 US Nationals. Frenzy was recently purchased by Jeb Bjornerud and will be on the line for the 2017 International 6 Metre World Championships.
