5.5 USA 1 "Complex II"
In line with growing interest in sailing 5.5m boats, several of them have been rediscovered in the United States. The location of 16 boats is known as of today.
The most prominent one is the recently restored 1952 Olympic Gold medal boat of Dr. Britton Chance, 5.5 US 1 „Complex II“.
Interested owners and sailors are invited to contact Daniel Rossi with information about other 5.5m located in the USA, so information can be compiled and added to the 5.5m Class Association database. Maybe in a not too distant future we will see them racing again in North America and possibly triggering interest in the Evolution and Modern divisions.
