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).

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!
