5.5 GER 69 "Arunga VIII" - back on Pittwater - 26.11.2019 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
"Arunga VIII", one of many Frank Tolhurst 5.5's, has returned to Australia, for the 2020 World's. But also to stay on, to serve as the local boat for their travelling owners. While racing GER 69 downunder, they will be racing GER 34 in Berlin.
The sister ship Warrior IV - 30.09.2010 by François Bouvier
Is the well known SUI 145, once called Reliance. The boats have different keel shapes, none of them original. Pray we can see those beautifully shaped ladies race against each other again.

A second boat was built to this design, called Warrior 4 for Al Cassel in Newport Beach, California.
