Apollo, Condor, Ondine VII, Drumbeat (Congere now Spank Me), Ragamuffin, Broomstick (Marchioness), Hammer of Qld, British Defender and Freight Train are all operating as Charter Boats in Australia's Whitsunday Islands from Ailrie Beach. Go to www.ozsailing.com.au.

These are great boats to sail. Yes they aren't as fast as Wild Oats XI but not many boats around the place are. This is probably the worlds largest operational maritime museum and well worth a walk around the marina.

K III after spending years in Brasil was donated last year to OCC in Newport beach. Still lookks classic, but getting a little long in the tooth.

Margaret Rintoul the Freers 50 is still on Lake Huron/St.Clair racing actively. Though big slow slugs, still winning it's fair share of races. I think there are a couple of anarchists here that race on it.

Isn't that the one that got some mixed coverage in "The Training Ground"?

SO is Bumblebee 4 / Ragamuffin... Condor (Holland) Siska IV... Freight Train...
That is Matador2, Goetz built 89-90 in the Whitsundays, Matador Huisman built Bills black boat ex Huaso is in South Africa , think Durban.

All you have to do is keep your eyes open ,old IOR boats litter the landscape.

 
Tell em Yaz.Where are Mr. Jumpa and Sweet Okole. They were IOR and fast.
I sailed on Mr. Jumpa in Maine after owner refit her with Mumm 36 keel in 1997; (actually Farr 36 keel before boat was modified to become Mumm 36). Renamed Tamarack. Owner bought her from insurance company after she was totalled- beached by Hurricane Bob- in 1991. Engine was replaced- moved from bow to center of boat. She rated 96 PHRF and in anything ovwer 8 knots was competitive. Owner sold her to guy in St. Johns, New Bruswick, Canada and he still races her there. Loved that boat!!

Carrot was racing on the Ches Bay as late as last year's Annap Race Week.

Haven't seen her around this year, maybe someone else will chime in...

She was there at Annapolis Race Week this year.

Sailed on her some a few years ago. A Mull 46 built in the mid-70s, IIRC. Originally named Gonnagitcha, donated to USNA and renamed Reprisal. First owner after USNA kept the name and the current owner christened her Carrot. Great guy and a fun crew.

Once drove her for hours on a windy Gov Cup back in the late 80s - early 90s (the memory is a little hazy from the beer fronts that used to roll thru). The same race where Air Mail got t-boned at night. Anyway, she digs a pretty big hole in the water in 15 knots of breeze and does about 9 knots. In 20-25, the hole gets a little deeper and the speed is around 10.5. In 30 knots, the speed is the same and the hole is deeper still. She sure does roll like has been mentioned here.

(edit) I notice that they are sailing with Dick on board in that photo. He was always the "Designated Adult". When he wasn't on board, we sailed "Dick-less".

Drive on. (and keep the boat under the stick)
