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.
Dave previously owned a 242 until a few years ago when he sold it to a buyer in Ladysmith. He plans on racing Ruckus at Gibsons YC and also participating in the 2021 NA's, among other Regional events. The black-hulled boat was originally listed for CDN$14,000 and had a long-boarded white Interlux epoxy bottom with black VC Offshore bottom paint for the keel & rudder tips, and the keel had been templated to the new Class standard. It also had new standing rigging in 2016 with calibrated turnbuckles and new running lines throughout, 2 spin poles, new main halyard, a Velocitek, and numerous other upgrades, plus a Measurement Certificate.
Welcome back to the Fleet, Dave, and enjoy your second 242!
