Eight Bells: Paul Elvstrom

Elvstrom, considered one of the greatest sailing athletes in the history of sailing, won four gold Olympic gold medals, beginning with the Firefly at 1948 London and then with the Finn at 1952 Helsinki, 1956 Melbourne, and 1960 Rome. More....

His various contributions helped change the face of sailing and the editions of "Elvstrom explains the racing rules" became mandatory reading for keen racing sailors world wide.
