Forty years ago, I had the privilege of being on the practice crew for F. Gardner Cox on US 68 ‘Cadenza’ – a Chance-designed hull. Sailing with Stuart Walker and Steve Colgate, Gardner went on to be the American 5.5 representative to the 1968 (Mexico City/Acapulco) games.
Gardner died in 1988. I spoke with Steve Colgate about 2 years ago and he is not aware of Cadenza’s current location. I have sent a message to Bill Cox (Gardner’s nephew) and if I hear anything about the boat, I’ll pass it on.
Don Cohan of Philadelphia (Bronze medal in the Dragon class in ’72) had a Chance 5.5 identical to Cadenza, but I can’t recall the sail number. It would make sense that it would be either US67 or US69, but really haven’t a clue.
