Nangarina KA-43 is Adrenalin is Claudia K-37 is Lady Blue FRA-49 - 28.11.2008 by Matti Muoniovaara
When surfing in my PC, I found out that Nangarina KA-43 and Claudia K-37 are same boats. I found the boats in my archives. I put the certifcates aside and noticed that they have identical measures. As a measurer I know that they are same boats.
I met Claudia and Peter Andreae in Helsinki and picked the certificate. I was watching the European Championship races in Helsinki 1991. The blue painted Claudia won the first race in a very light drifting breeze. Peter Andreae sold the boat to France after he got Candida 3, the Peterson boat. Later I saw Claudia and Peter Shanks in Dronningen KNS Oslo during the King's series.
At present Claudia is in France having sail letters FRA-49 and name Lady Blue owner Laure Mouton in Arradon (French list).
Australian Jeremy Goodman brought the boat to Europe. The boat raced in Hankö World Championship using the name Adrenalin (was 26th , 21-21-22-30-24-28-16). Peter Andreae raced the boat in Torquay World Championship 1990 (was 18th) and in Helsinki Europeans 1991 (was 9th, 1-10-18-10-13). Peter Shanks from Youngwoods Isle of Wight sailed the boat in the Bahamas World Championship 1992 (was 10th, 2-11-11-27-10-22-14). 1997 it raced in Crouesty Europeans helmed by the French A. Chaudoye using name Claudia K-37 and finishing 21th. Then it disappears from international racing.
No sistership to N-44 Footloose - 20.08.2008 by Matti Muoniovaara
These two boats KA-43 and N-44 are completely different boats. It can be read from the two certificates. They are different in all numbers.
L1 length KA43 is 7.343 and N44 7.288, weights 1765 and 1748.
Sister-ship of NOR-044 ? - 20.08.2008 by Site Administrator
To be confirmed.
KA-43 is not N-44 - 14.07.2008 by Matti Muoniovaara
In Sydney World 5.5 Championship Tim Herbert sails with KA-43 Nangarina to place 17 overall.
John Platou sails with N-44 Footloose to place 8 overall. Do Footloose is not Nangarina. According to certificate Footloose was built (completed) 24th December 1985.
Nangarina (NOR-44) shipped to The Netherland - 30.05.2008 by jos motzheim
Nangarina was sailed for a couple of years by Petter Fjeld untill 2003. The boat was at that time named FOKUS. On Februari 14th, 2004 Petter shipped the boat to our hometown Lelystad in the Netherlands and we bought it from him. I restored the boat carefully, also it was repainted professionally. It now bears the name Wirri-Wirri what means Whirlwind in the Aboriginal Language ;-) We sail it at the Markermeer. it still has the old number NOR-44. Jos Motzheim (owner)
