5.5 SUI 96 - Where is the boat today? - 07.01.2018 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
In an attempt to rejoin all existing participant boats of the 1968 Acapulco Olympic sailing regattas during summer 2018 for a 50th anniversary event, the search is on for 5.5 SUI 96, last named "Galatea" and located then on Lake Zürich. Who can help?
Yeoman in Acapulco 1968 - 08.08.2015 by Matias Johansson
GBR-035 can be seen in the book "Elvström speaks on Yacht Racing" p. 16 with two other unidentified 5.5's in the background.
A complete list of yachts participating in the 1968 Mexico olympics can be found here:

5.5 Z-96 "Revenge II" - in the 70s - 28.07.2014 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
H. Haffter, owner from 1974 to 1978 reports on "Revenge II":
She was maintained at the Boatyard Heinrich in Kreuzlingen, which built a separate rudder for her, making the original rudder smaller, to become a trim tab.
From all the many boats he has been experiencing, he says, that the 5.5 was the most elegant and nicest to sail.
5.5 K-35 & Z-96 - data transfer - 18.03.2014 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Following information from Robin A. Aisher, K-35 became Z-96 in 1969; hence the data transfer for Z-96:

5.5 Z-96 "Nisse IV" - Original or alias? - 21.08.2009 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Given the high Swiss sailnumber for a 1967 boat, there is a probability, that Z-96 had been imported. K-35 "Yeoman XV" was sold to Switzerland at the end of the 60's but so far it is not known which Swiss sailnumber she got. Ohlson/Svineviken would match the Aisher purchasing habit. Anyone having photographs and info on Z-96 from between 1967 and 1972, please place them here.
5.5 K-35 - The 1968 "Bronce boat" - 01.08.2010 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
This boat is said to have been sold to Switzerland. Who can offer historic info on her history between 1969 and the 1970's?
