Welcome back to the Regional Fleet - Dave Pritchard - 5th boat of 2020 to change hands

On approximately June 5, the 5th boat of 2020 changed hands. Sebastian Fritz of Royal Vancouver Yacht Club sold Ruckus (listed February 19, 2020), #229, to Dave Pritchard of Gibsons YC.

Welcome to the Regional Fleet - Yury Levkovskiy

On April 25, the 3rd boat of 2020 changed hands. Norm Tsui of Kits Yacht Club sold Figarwe, #233, to Yury Levkovskiy, who will continue to race it out of Kits YC, where it was located on a yard dolly and was always dry sailed. Yury raced on Electra in 2019, so he is quite familiar with 242’s.

The white-hulled boat was originally listed for CDN$7800 and came with race sails, an older spare sail inventory, cushions and boards, Yamaha 4HP OB, and an electric trolling motor. Welcome to the Fleet, Yury, and enjoy your first 242!

 


Hopefully, Yury will answer the question of where Figarwe.

Welcome back to the Regional Fleet - Ben Gartside

On May 9, the 4th boat of 2020 changed hands. Jim Vallance of Nanaimo Yacht Club sold Marty (ex-Mongoose), #260, to Ben Gartside, who will race it out of Sidney North Saanich YC. Ben previously owned a 242 back in the 90's.
The light grey-hulled boat was originally listed for CDN$11,000 and came with a good road trailer, yard stand, lots of good sails, new jib sock and mainsail cover, new VC Offshore bottom paint, a 4.5hp Yamaha outboard, lots of extras, and a 2018 Measurement Certificate.

Great to have you back Ben, enjoy your second 242!
