1924 R Class sloop

1924 Burgess Swasey & Payne designed R Class (20 rater) boat. Built by Anker Jensen in Oslo Norway. Owned and lovingly maintained for 35 years, she is actively raced hard in a tight growing fleet of R Boats on Lake Ontario. She is in tip top condition and surveyed in 2013.

Re: 1924 R Class sloop

I know this boat and have seen the owner working on it with professional skill for several years. I don't suspect that a finer (or, likely, stronger) example exists of a fully restored R Class boat.

There are three R Classes in a row at my club to compare and contrast against.
Can't sleep? Read for fast relief. Can't read? Avoid, because it's just personal reviews of sea books.
