Winter Sailing & 2017 NAs

Cool news from our friends in Texas. They are offering to host anyone wishing to sail/race this winter in advance of the North Americans:

"As you know the 2017 J/24 North Americans will be in Houston, Texas (May 25-28). We have made arrangements with the Austin Yacht Club in Texas where competitors can store their boats during the Winter in preparation for the NAs. This is a great opportunity for boats from northern climates to get to do some Winter sailing in Texas, during a time when their boats would otherwise be unused. We have 10 regattas this Winter, between now and the J/24 North Americans in May! Hopefully some of the J/24s from Canada will be able to come South for the Winter and then do North Americans!"

HULL 1734 For Sale

1979 Tillotson Pearson J24
Sail number 1734
-2 sets of sails – one set of old North Sails (main and genoa) and one set of Quantum that we currently race with (also with Doyle spinnaker and storm sail)
-It does have a newer mast (1984) and standing rigging.

-Maxibraid genoa sheets and Maffioli swiftcord spinnaker sheets both changed in 2012

-The hull itself is the reason we bought the boat in the first place; it’s got no osmosis or blistering and is very fair. The keel was faired before we bought the boat, but is in good shape. We’ve put a bunch of work into it (including new barrier coat this month) to slow the inevitable blistering that comes along with owning a J24.

-Trailer had the wiring re-done right before we bought it and lights replaced with LED’s as well as an all black paint job

+ MERCURY 5.5 HP engine.

Price: 5950 $
