5.5 USA 62 "Lyric" - sailing again
Eric Stockinger reports on the relaunch of "Lyric" after a complete rebuild to original configuration. First races have been sailed on local waters (Mainsail showing 72 of "Cloud IX"?) and the boat will serve as flagship boat for the yard. Boat & Crew are looking forward to join other 5.5's, racing on the East Coast.
Designer is Norman Owens.
