Still time to buy a 5.5m for the Worlds in January 2020!

There is still time to buy a 5.5m for the Worlds coming up from the 3rd January to 13th January 2020 at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club.   There will be more and more boats arriving over the next few weeks and there are many club members that have already bought boats to compete.  There are now 14 RPAYC boats that are being worked up for the Worlds!  These are:

 

Classics Pre 1970:
Kings Cross
Barragoola

Evolutions 1970-1993:
Antares
Skagerak
Rhapsody
Arunga
Marriotte
Arunga X
Shank (new name not known yet)
Tangalooma
Ku-Ring-Gai

Moderns Post 1994
Alpha Crucis
Ku-Ring-Gai 2
Beta Crucis 

There is still plenty of time to join the throng as there are many 5.5ms that are for sale.  Please see the for sale lists below.  It is easy to look up the history of any 5.5m on the class database by just searching the name or sail number https://5.5inventory.org/  

Hoegh Autoliners are one of our major sponsors and are offering inexpensive RoRo shipping from Europe of 5.5ms to Australia for the Worlds (around $5.5K).   The last dates to ship from Europe in time for the Worlds is the end of October.  So there has never been a better to look and consider joining us for the Worlds!

After the Worlds the 5.5m you will have a great club boat.  Easy to sail with a self tacking jib and requiring only 2-3 crew.  Remember you never really own a 5.5m you just look after it for the next generation!

If you need any more information on any of the boats or contact details email General Boat Enquires link here https://www.5.5class.org/contact
