5.5 US-5 "Blue Star" - transfer of data - 21.01.2014 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
J. Burke Reports: My father, Terrence Burke, acquired the 5.5 USA-5 in the early 60s. I was told it was used in the Olympic time trials. It was titled Blue Star -- I believe -- when he purchased it. I sailed with him in Annpaolis for a few years and have a painting of it in my home. I would love to know more about its history -- and if anyone knows its whereabouts. It was sold in Annapolis, Maryland in 1969 or 1970 upon his death.
Greatly appreciate any insight.
