5.5 NOR 54 & her sisters - 21.05.2020 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Following info received from Warren Muir about "Warrior III" and the first series of Melges built 5.5m boats, here is a list of sister boats to NOR 54; the boats are listed with their last sailnumbers known:
NOR 47, CAN 79, NOR 50, FRA 61, USA 94, SUI 184, SUI 176, NOR 56, SUI 202, NED 10, NOR 58, SUI 155, SUI 160, SUI 171, SUI 172 and GER 25. NED 10 was lost in a fire; USA 94 has not yet been found, again.
To these the two initial boats are added, GER 94 and FRA 44. It will be a challenge to meet again, for close competition races. Gentlemen, on your marks!
