Careel 22 designer has died (apparently murdered)
Yacht designer Joe Adams is something of a legend in the Aussie yachting world. Best known for his rule-ignoring raceboats (like ’72 Hobart-winning Helsal and the cult classic Adams 10m one-design), the 81-year old Port Macquarie native had retired in the 80s to Baguio, a resort town in the Philippines.
On Monday, his throat was cut, and his body found by a gardener.
