Open 50 moored outside RCYC?

Recommended Posts

Saw there’s a nondescript Open (50, maybe?) boat moored outside RCYC. Dull gray paint, no commercial branding or cosmetics. Anyone know the backstory? 

On another note, Derek’s boat seems to be languishing away on the hard out by Cherry Beach. Thought there was a new offshore development team that was supposed to be using that?

Cheers.

The white boat that has been moored at RCYC for the last few years is the former Spirit of Canada open 60.

Thanks. Is anyone actually planning on using it, or is the club just holding onto it for posterity’s sake? 

Then there’s Derek’s newer boat gathering dust near Cherry Beach

Don't know what the boat near Cherry Beach is or where specifically you are referring to, but unless they have moved it since Friday, Derek's open 60 built in Canada is at RCYC and whatever the other boat is it is almost certainly not an open 60, it could be one of the two Epsirit de Corps Volvo 60's that were moored at the foot of Parliament street this summer.

As far as plans for the boat, not sure what the exact situation is but it is pretty much the same old story of no sponsor so no money.

Derek's 60 (O'canada/spirit of canada) is not owned by the club its owned independently (really complicated noone wants to talk about it kind of deal)

EDC's boats left the RCYC at the end of august so not their VO60's. They have a Castro 40 and another VO60 that are grey but i'm pretty sure they aren't in Toronto. I'll get back when i get a reply

Hey thanks for the replies. I’m not a suitor, just curious.

yeah it looked like his newer boat, still wearing full colours, was parked on the hard at the foot of Parliament for most of the spring/summer. Haven’t been by lately...

P Butter, the open 60 oh Canada/spirit of  Canada has both been dry docked at foot of Parliament and kept on a mooring ball at Rcyc for the last couple of seasons since its arrival from Vancouver and is now under new ownership...so it may be just 1 and the same open 60 you guys are talking about.
