5.5 SUI 160 and her sisters - 04.02.2010 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Following the info from Warren Muir about "Warrior III" and the first series of Melges built 5.5m boats, here are the sister boats to SUI 160; they are listed with their last sailnumbers known:
NOR 47, USA 91, NOR 50, GER 75, USA 94, SUI 184, USA 96, NOR 54, SUI 176, NOR 56, SUI 202, NED 10, NOR 58, BAH 16, SUI 155, SUI 171, SUI 172 and GER 25. NED 10 was lost in a fire; USA 91 is believed to have become BAH 16 (now CAN 79) and USA 94 to have become SUI 171.
Together with the originals FRA 44 and SUI 135, it will be a challenge to meet again, for close competition races.
