Welcome to the Regional Fleet, Graham Sibbald, Eric Bretsen, and Georg Reuter
On February 17th, Jo-Ann Heinz of Kitsilano Yacht Club sold Silver Bullet, Hull #87 (listed February 6, 2022, for CDN$11,590), to Graham Sibbald, Eric Bretsen, and Georg Reuter of Vancouver, which makes it the 4th transaction of the year in the Pacific Northwest Region and the 51st in just over 5 years. Silver Bullet will remain at KYC.
Graham raced out of Schooner Cover, Nanoose Bay, a lifetime ago aboard “Free & Clear”, a 26’ Thunderbird, followed by “Jenny Gibson”, a C&C Viking 34.
Georg has spent time cruising BC waters, and long ago crewed on a San Juan 24. He’s looking forward to joining the 242 Fleet.
Eric has been on dry land (mainly the soccer field kind) for the last 20 years, following 10 years of crewing aboard a Shark in the waters of Toronto Harbour.
With a grey hull, Silver Bullet is in very good condition with bottom paint, and comes with a 2016 Measurement Certificate that is almost completed. Outlined below is a list of improvements made to the boat since 2019:
June 2019 – new cam cleats, fairleads, bearings
