Britton Chance


Britton Chance was a prodigious naval architect and designer of many sailboats including several America’s Cup contenders. He played a significant role along with Bruce Nelson, Dave Pedrick and SAIC scientists (led by Nils Salvesen and Carl Scragg) in developing the design of “Stars and Stripes” for Dennis Connors’s 1987 bid for the return of the America Cup to the USA. Chance’s talents were employed by Harken Inc. for the 65-foot futuristic Procyon project. Chance was active in racing sail design implementing many new foil designs which have pushed the state-of-the-art and rules of some of the worlds most prestigious races.
