Australian yachting legend, Syd Fischer launched his first Ragamuffin in 1968. Actively campaigning three Grand Prix racing yachts, (Ragamuffin 100, 90 and 52) pursuing line honours and world records across the globe, Syd and his Team Ragamuffin are still living the dream 45 years on.

Over the years many of the world's most talented sailors have graduated from the Ragamuffin program, with Syd providing opportunities for Australia's best and brightest young sailors to experience some of the toughest races in the world. Together with courage and determination, a “little bit of cheekiness” personifies the Ragamuffin name.
