Former 5.5 SR 1 in Italy - 26.03.2020 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Enzo reports on this boat, found on the shores of Lago Maggiore:
"...The boat arrived from San Pietersburgo (the only sure thing). Who brought the boat to Italy says that is Russia I..."
As the sailnumber SR-1 had been dedicated to at least two boats in Russia, it has to be found, which boat it was. One Option is "Burevestnik", the other one "Druzhba III". Given the lines of the boat and the double cockpit, it looks like being former 5.5 S 3.

The first name of this boat was simply "KSSS 1951". The winner was W F Persson and the boat was built at Holms boatyard in Gamleby. (unfortunately Persson is a very common name in Sweden so it´s not easy to find out who he - or she - was)
