The boat has changed hands and will in future be sailing in Estland.
I owned SWE-024 "Rush V"
I owned SWE-024 "Rush V" during a few years during late 1970's. I think it was 1975-1979. I had the boat in Lidingö (just outside Stockholm).
I bought it from a person who had it in Fisksätra, and sold it to a person living outside of Gustavsberg, (both also just outside of Stockholm).
I couldn't change this in the Ownership history myself.
My name is Bo Westerlund

Rejoin the 1956 Olympic boats - in 2016
The 1956 Gold Medal boat "Rush V" has gone through a complete restoration, preparing her for racing again, hopefully soon also meeting with her 1956 Olympic competitors. Those, whose location is known are these:
FRA 8 - Loperhet, Bretagne
FRA 17 (ex GBR 17) - Riantec, Bretagne
AUS 5 - Lake Macquarie, New South Wales
ITA 17 - Lago di Como
Who has info on these missing boats?
We do plan to rejoin all of them in 2016, for the 60th Melbourne Games anniversary.
