68 went to the Left coast, I think he was going to sail it in San Diego for bit.

I believe it may see Big waters time will tell if he checks in here. Boat traveled 2700 miles from my house. I have confirmation that it arrived safely.

I am sorry to say that #146 Odyssey is once again the only S2 7.9 sailing lake Wallenpaupack, northeastern PA. I believe at one point 3-4 years ago we had 6.

I just bought #20 (IB, Frac, Lifting) and it will go through a major refit this winter/spring. Boat will sail out of Chicago Corinthian YC at Montrose Harbor in Chicago, IL.

2018 goal is to make the starting line for CCR at FYC in September.

I just completed an update of the Owners Registry. A lot of boats have changed hands. If you know of a 7.9 in your area, let me know so i can have comprehensive registry. The owners list is here:

I have #480 Gris-Gris (formerly Runaway at Privateer YC). Purchased June 22, 2009. The only 7.9 on Lake Wheeler, AL (berthed at Joe Wheeler State Park Marina). I understand that Gordon Trowbridge sold #479 Slo-Motion; so no 7.9 on Lake Guntersville. And Horace Holland hasn't had a 7.9 on Lake Wilson for quite a awhile. Maybe

Any 7.9's near me ? I'd like to crew/learn the boat. I've been racing/skippering a 30' Beneteau for 25 years, but new to the 7.9

Also, I've got an excellent Triad trailer that could be borrowed for St. Pete NOODs, etc.

Thanks,
Ron

#516 Sidetracked is in Madison, WI

It looks like the link to the owners list is broken. Anyone know the last person that sailed this boat? The previous owners got it with the property.

#68 finally saw the water for the first time in 3 years. I live in Jackson Wy and for now my boat is in Garden City Utah on Bear Lake. I have about 2 more days of work to get it racing with Bear Lake Yacht Club.

Hello

All is well so, as the boat is in the water for winter sailing. A Noreaster and a ft. of snow here tomorrow.
Hoping for more winter sailing soon in Oceanside NY.

Fair winds and following seas!
