Wanted: cast iron centerboard for 1963 Rhodes 19. Needs to be in good condition. Cape Cod, MA. Contact email@example.com
Rhodes 19 Class members,
Greeting from your 2020 Rhodes 19 National Championship regatta committee! As promised, our committee met on June 1st to assess the viability of holding the 2020 Nationals. We have some bad news and some good news.
First the bad news. We concluded that in the current environment, we would be unable to put on an event worthy of Nationals. Reason are many, and at a high level include, 1) uncertainty around participation (particularly for travelers), 2) limitations on the ability to run a top notch regatta with limited RC resources (the CYC signal boat Pegasus is not even going in the water this season), and 3) the near certainty that shoreside events would be limited or perhaps not possible at all. So regrettably, the 2020 Nationals is cancelled.
As to the good news, we have secured alternative dates for next year. Mark August 17-20, 2021 in your calendars. The 2021 Nationals regatta will again hosted by Fleet 5 and the Corinthian Yacht Club, and the entire 2020 regatta committee has agreed to stay on and finish the job we started. So circle the dates, and we’ll look forward to seeing you next summer in Marblehead.
One final note – we understand that Class President Mike Lane and the class officers will plan to hold the 2020 Annual Meeting on Zoom. So keep an eye out for details on that.
Please feel free to reach out to either of us if you have questions or comments.
All the best,

Rhodes 19 with Trailer for sale on Martha’s Vineyard
Sandpiper is a true classic Rhodes 19. O’Day manufactured hull # 15280, Sail # 1435.
The boat is located on Martha’s Vineyard and includes a trailer that is in excellent condition. The boat has had multiple winning seasons in local yacht club sailing. The hull has been faired and the boat inside has been updated for performance. The paint is in excellent condition. The boat has racing sails: 1 spinnaker (brand new, purchased at the end of last season and used twice), racing main and jib (both 2 years old and crisp).
This boat is a very successful racer and a lovely day sailor for taking out family and friends. The hull is an attractive Classic Blue with white deck, black mast and teak floorboards.
Our family is moving to a new racing class and would really love to pass this boat on to a Rhodes 19 sailor who is looking to compete and enjoy with family/friends.
