5.5 F 88 "Bewitched IV" - racing in the 80's - 11.05.2020 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
A picture from an Int. 5.5m Class bochure, is showing F-88 racing next to S-63. Timing believed to be around 1986-1988, the photo taken by Jacques-Henry Addor. Anyone who can give info on when that regatta was sailed and where is welcome to comment. The Lepage ownership entry will be adjusted to FRA 88.
5.5 SUI 88 - First French ownership - 20.02.2011 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
As the number F-88 had not been assigned officially, the Inventory will list this boat for the Lepage ownership as SUI 88.

Malloh-Ru III - 05.10.2007 by Louis Pillon
Malloh-Ru et Malloh-Ru II, bateaux de G. Demoment, n'étaient pas des 5,5 m JI. Pour ceux qui ne comprennent pas le breton, ce nom veut dire "Malédiction rouge" tout en étant un des pires jurons bretons...
Voir aux pages 70-71 du N° 195 du Chasse-Marée l'article du "Chasse-Marée" signé par Gwendal Jaffry, mais dont j'ai assuré la recherche (mais pas la relecture...).
Doubt on name : Malloh-Ru II or III ? - 04.10.2007 by Site Administrator
Notes from Louis Pillon (04.10.07) mentionned one time "Malloh-Ru II", one time "Malloh-Ru III"
Re-birth of the french association - 04.10.2007 by Site Administrator
Note from Louis Pillon 04.10.07 : En 1990, l'association des 5,5 m JI sort du sommeil et entreprend de faire du ménage dans les N°, et ce même bateau prend le N° FRA-040 !
Why FRA-088 ? - 04.10.2007 by Site Administrator
Note from Louis Pillon 04.10.07 : En 1981, le bateau est acheté par un Français, M. Lepage qui le rebaptise "Bewitched IV". Sans association de classe pour le numéroter, il lui donne le N° F 88.
