Hello fellow sailors,
Did you know there is an affordable one design racer in Boston? The
Mass Bay Thunderbird fleet is always looking for eager sailors to
join us in weeknight and weekend racing.
The Thunderbird is a 26 foot sloop which races with a crew of 3 or
4. It has been sailing in the bay since the early 1960's. The boats
are built of either plywood or fiberglass. We have NOT seen an
advantage to the fiberglass boats on the race course. They are
excellent day sailors and have a cabin that sleeps up to 4 adults for
overnighting and cruising. One of our fleet members is is currently
off the Atlantic coast returning from Key West.
We have a handful of woooden boats currently for sale at rock bottom
prices. Some less than 1K... Fiberglass boats are available to be
transported from other locations. These wooden boats are still very
competitive. The fleet is mostly centered out of Savin Hill YC in
Dorchester with a few other boats scattered about. We have over a
dozen boats directly in Boston Harbor.
If you would like to learn more about the boat and the fleet, please
drop me a line.
