    Club Swan 50

    Somehow I think arriving in a Swan 65 is likely to get one invited to a few good parties on the Riv. - or elsewhere.. Exactly. Swan European Regatta, Caribbean Rally, Swan Club parties. (They used to have an American regatta but stupidly did away with it ). But in general it is hard to out do Swan owner support and social scene. At the end of the day it's an active distance racing crowd for all models and owners. 45 is a great boat. Won overall in the Bermuda and Sydney Hobart races. 42 Swanabees are not even in he same discussion. More like building to a disposable one design coastal brief. A Cadillac built in a converted Mexican factory. They will be replaced in 7-8 yrs and hard to find in 20. Did the Swan Atlantic on Nantucket in the early 90's on Indulgence, best regatta I ever sailed in.

    That building in shot # 3 got to be the Royal Swedish YC (Sandhamn) in the background.

    Bondi Tram, the Frers 42 from three decades ago is for sale in Hawaii, good looking boat. That's from Yachtworld.

    These were and are upwind machines, both the X-102's and X-3/4 Tons.

    Serious Boat porn, one of the coolest period of yacht racing.

    Three times around, I think not. That's the short course (roughly) for the ILYC distance race.

    Looks like a Baltic 43 isn'it ? Not a 43, clearly a C & C , 39' maybe.

    Thanks Larry! Will be sharing this with her current owner. Way cool boat, wonder why Pedrick designed her to look like a Baltic. Maybe, he worked for DP at some time (I thougth he was a S&S guy).

    So I guess that the "Fujimo" tale of "F.. you Jane I'm moving out" from the Frers 50 tale is/was total bs.
