Natalie J TP52 for sale

Boat History:
Natalie J was built by Cookson boat builders in New Zealand in 2006 for the Illbruck family and named Pinta. Designed by Judel/Vrolick for the TP52 Class rules, she was raced in the TP52 class in Europe for a short time and then put on the hard. She was purchased by the Colm Barrington from Ireland and renamed Flash Glove. She was optimized for racing under the IRC rule by changing the keel and rudder and sprit. She was campaigned very successfully in the US and England. The boat was stored in Hamble England where we purchased her and brought her back to the US. Structure was added in the boat to make her stiffer for offshore sailing, along with waterproofing and electronics. We have campaigned her successfully all over the USA having sailed her on the East Coast doing the Block Island race, the NYYC Annual regatta and sailing the Newport to Bermuda race. We also took her out to California and sailed the Newport California to Cabo where we won Class A. We then sailed NJ in the famous Transpac race from Long Beach California to Honolulu Hawaii. We have also spent a great deal of time sailing in the Great Lakes.
Race Performance:
Five-time Class and Overall Winner of the Bayview Mackinac Race
Won the Turbo section and Overall winner of the Chicago Mackinac Race
Two time First to Finish and First Overall in the Queen’s Cup.
First to finish Tripp Cup
Won several Chicago NOOD regattas and Harbor Springs regattas.
