Yes it is. The new owner is a 20 something sailor out of SF.

 

The SF FD fleet has added 4 new boat owners, plus 1 brand new US built full carbon FD to the stable. Two other prior owners have upgraded their older boats to newer ones. The demographics on the new FD sailors are mostly 20-early 30 year olds. One 40+ older owner.

 

The next west coast regatta is the North Americans at the Gorge, in the first weekend of August. It should likely be a predominately left coast affair with some Canadian participation.

Well done. To paraphrase Say's Law: Supply does indeed create it's own demand.

It was well rebuilt by Gluck. All the inner workings and sails are competitive. Should be fun to see it exercised. 

 

Now if we can just get it to California...

 

Here is another shot.

Yeah, look in the local craigslists for rideshares.  Suprising how many people are coming west and wouldn't mind some gas money!
