There was one in New Orleans, Dom Perignon, prior to Katrina which was customized for racing. She did amazingly well in anything over 8-10 knots of breeze. I sailed on her several times and she was a freight train. Lovely boat, I'd buy one in a second.
No, she was in Biloxi, Mississippi when Katrina hit. She had been donated to the Biloxi Seafood & Maritime Industry Museum. Perhaps someone affiliated with the Museum can be of further assistance.

Simonton Court Key West
you could try Simonton Court - I have stayed there several times. it's 1 block off of Duval St and walking distance to pretty much anywhere. it's mostly a single room type of B&B, but they do have several small houses that are available. several pools also...
Looks like a gear-busting practice day!
Cloudy. Rain this morning...then a chance of rain this afternoon. Windy with highs in the upper 40s. Northwest winds 15 to 25 mph...increasing to 25 to 30 mph this afternoon. Gusts around 45 mph. Chance of rain 80 percent.
any word on Houston Yacht Club yet? My folks live in The Woodlands and lost power on Friday night, still no power. Lots of trees and limbs down, but none on their home thank god. Cell service is still very spotty - was able to get through to them once yesterday after trying for hours.... :(
We should be ok here....no levees for the Corps of Engineers to fuck up, and we have hills and high ground! <_<
In the interest of my friends and family on the coast, I would rather NOT take that bet.... :(
