Ole 39 did a 40 mile light air race on the Chesapeake Annapolis to Solomons. Not exactly what these boats were designed for. We finished 3rd behind two sport boats then corrected to a distant last place. Fun event nevertheless.
We will be racing with 4 on board for 3-4 days. I am thinking of adding a 8gph water maker (80#) and running the motor for one hour twice a day to desalinate. Any experience with this on a vintage class 40?
Very exciting week for me. My newly acquired #39 gets launched this Friday after a stage two refit. I will spend the weekend getting her commissioned then we go sailing Monday and Tuesday of next week. First time sailing the boat for me, can't wait.
