5.5 CAN 31 - former 5.5 G 2 "Cheetah"
After some racing over recent years, the boat is now available for the next owner. Given the historic background, designed by Henry Rasmussen and built by A&R, maybe even a return to the Weser River or to the Baltic Sea can be made possible.
5.5 CAN 31 - in Ontario
John Lister reports from Canada: "...The boat is currently owned by Kim Malcolm of Markham, Ontario. The boat is in good condition, under cover and up for sale. She had been restored in 1993 by professionals at Woodwind Yachts when Jim Malcolm purchased her. Jim and Kim sailed her out of NYC in Toronto through the 1990’s..."
