Welcome to the Regional Fleet - Heather Sloat - 7th boat of 2020 to change hands
On July 1, Canada Day, the 7th boat of 2020 changed hands. Ian Fraser of Royal Vancouver Yacht Club sold GNT (listed January 13, 2018), #221 (ex Martini), to Heather Sloat, who is putting together a women's team to race it out of Saltspring Island Sailing Club and to participate in the 2021 NA's at Nanaimo YC, among other Regional events. Heather has raced 242's before, both in the RVYC Match Racing Series back in 2011/12, as well as the Women's National Championships in Vancouver in 2006 or so.
The white-hulled boat was listed for about CDN$12,500, and came with 3 suits of sails, including a brand-new, never-used, North main and jib. The boat was in near race-ready condition and had: a Clint Currie-applied epoxy bottom; VC Offshore bottom paint; a new Harken traveller; a Mercury 4hp long shaft outboard motor. No yard dolly or road trailer. The boat measured in almost perfectly and now has a 2016 Measurement Certificate.
Welcome to the Fleet, Heather, and enjoy your first 242!
