- Year Built:
Designed for Baron C. Juel Brockdorff and built in Denmark by the NORDBJAERG YARDS. Honduras mahogany/white oak/Swedish steel with Burma teak and padouk decks and cuddy cabin. Owned by the Mazza family for a number of years in the mid 1960's, where she sailed out of the Queen City Yacht Club in Toronto. Mostly raced at local regattas under the old LOR Handicap system, usually against a mixture of old R Boats, P Boats, etc... She was painted white in that period and had a small cuddy cabin, a 3 spreader wooden mast and boom, and a single cockpit. Purchased by Judi Kennedy in 1973 and rebuilt in '74-'75 by C&C Custom Yachts and thereafter maintained by Carlaw Custom Yachts. Beautiful tapered aluminum mast and boom by "Klaco" (triple spreader/jumper strut painted mast buff). Owned by Judi Kennedy from 1973 to 2016.
- Now this newest member of the Vancouver Fleet has been restored by Mark Wallace in time for the 2017 World Championships in Vancouver.
