R19 Keel Model – #2475 – with Triad Trailer – $4,995 (New Hampshire)

This boat was donated to a non-profit sailing school (www.lwsa.org ) and is being sold below market price for the benefit of this organization

This boat is a 1975, and is in good original condition. You will see that the gelcoat has held up extremely well. It has the original fittings – not a bunch of filled-in screw holes from changes made along the way.

The rudder was replaced two years ago. The wooden ribs, often an issue with older Rhodes 19’s, were replaced by Fays Boatyard in 2011 for a cost of $2,324.

There is a like-new cockpit cover, and a built-in gusher pump. The sails will be fine for cruising; you will likely want to replace them if you plan to race.

The tires on the Triad trailer were replaced 6 years ago. The lights work.

The donor was very fastidious (a pharmacist). The boat was in use until last fall, and everything is there to sail it away on day one.

Congratulations Nationals 2018

Rick McGregor (above left) won the 2018 Rhodes 19 National Championship title by winning the final race of an 11-race series on October 5–7 in New Orleans, LA. The weather gods provided great racing conditions over the three day event.

McGregor held a small lead after the first two days over five-time R19 National Champion and local ace, Benz Faget. However, two races into the final day, Faget had taken a one-point lead with just one race remaining.

In fantastic racing conditions, Faget found himself on the wrong side of shift, dropping him back into fifth place while McGregor, with Heather Funkhauser/ Gary Taylor and Jackson Benvenutti calling tactics, maneuvered into a three-way fight for first place with Mike Lane of Marblehead and local fleet captain Rocky Sanchez.

The three boats surfed down the final leg of the final race jockeying for the win. McGregor’s Pog Ma Hon surfed past the others to take a half boat-length win in the final race and the series.

The twenty-boat fleet had sailors from Alabama, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, and New York, but it was the locals from Southern Yacht Club that dominated the final standings, taking 4 of the top 5 overall places. Only Marblehead’s Mike Lane broke the local stranglehold, finishing third overall behind McGregor and Faget. Sanchez took fourth place and Dwight LeBlanc Jr rounded out the top five.
