Lindenberg 26 Racing

Dick Wisti's Finlandia first won the MORC internationals in 1977, the same year he purchased her (apparently he had the keel faired when he first got her). In 1981, Allendorf's "Slaughter House" won in Toledo at the Station 34 Nationals. Finlandia won again in 1990 at the joint Station 40/90 Nationals held in Duluth on Lake Minetonka.
