Brad Robinson and "The Price of Victory" were recently featured in the December issue of Lake Minnetonka Magazine, a monthly magazine for the community of Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota:
"In The Price of Victory and the Fear of Innovation, author Linda Tedford tells the story of longtime Deephaven resident Brad Robinson, who passed away in October at age 78. 'The book is about Brad’s innovation in the world of competitive sailing and how his creative genius was rejected to protect the interest of one boat builder,' Tedford says.
According to Tedford, Robinson used his engineering skills to correct design flaws in the A Scow sailboats at the Inland Lake Yachting Association. When he presented his newly designed Victory boat as a gift to the organization, it was seen as a threat to the monopoly holder in boat designs and eventually led to a court case."
