L-8 the original sail number
Just a quick note, that the original sail number for Ariane IV has been L-8. The sail number L-8 was maintained until 1998 when the sails were renewed. Could you correct that in the details?
One addition to the ownership history: during years 1997-2007 the boat has been owned by a Finnish family Marttila.

The boat's home is in Helsinki, in Suomenlinna fortress island, in sailing club SuPS (Suomenlinnan Pursiseura).
We just won silver - with a little bit of luck - in the biggest Finnish classic sailing boat competition in Viaporin Tuoppi, unfortunately both Figaro and Norna were both having accidents;(
Here is a late picture from June.

I am the new owner of the former Flamenco, former Ariane IV designed by G. Kyntzell and built in 1952.
We have also renamed the boat back to the actualy original name Ariane, Flamenco was used between 1965-2007.
