2009 Mai: Avec ce No sur la liste classe Mini.
Octobre, mail de Adrian Blunt:
"The boat was built in 1993 but only recently granted
a Classe Mini number.
The boat was 'grandfathered' having been accepted by the Classe as an entry in the 1995 MT under the name SAIL for Kids.
She has since been renamed Bushranger.
Joe Cooper has written a very detailed history of the boat, now a North American classic, designed by Tom Wylie who designed American Express the MT winner in 1979."
