Missing

Here is a list of boats known to exist, but whose whereabouts are currently unknown. If you have any information on the boats listed below, or do not see a boat you know of listed anywhere in the "Fleets" pages, please contact me with the information, and I'll add it to these pages.

KC 15 Juno, ex K33 Juno - 1948 Charles Nicholson design, built by Camper & Nicholson in double planked Honduras mahogany, carvel on diagonal. She was built for the 1948 British Olympic trials and sailed several years on the Solent, including in races for the British-American Team Race Challenge. Came to British Columbia and has been in the Puget Sound area since the '60s. Like many of the boats actively sailed in the '70's in the USA, a portion of her counter has been removed. She was last known to be in Sidney, B.C. in early 2000, but was reportedly sold to an owner based on the Bras d'Or Lake region of Nova Scotia.

N 61 Lully II - Bjarne Aas designed and built, 1936. 'Lulli II' was the Norwegian entry to the 1936 Olympics in Berlin and won the Silver medal. Few people remember the controversy of that regatta, however. The race series was actually won by the Swiss boat 'Ylliam IV' with the great Louis Nouverraz at the helm. The Germans protested that Nouverraz was a professional because he was employed by the Fermenich family, who owned 'Ylliam IV'. The Swiss were disqualified, Great Britain's 'Lalage' moved up for the Gold. 'Lulli II' was last known to be in a yard at Coyle, a neighborhood near Dabob Bay on Hood Canal.

N 74 Risken - 1948 Bjarne Aas design. Thought to be in the Portland, Oregon area.

US 75 Lightscout - 1939 Herman Whiton design.

L 49 VIOLET - Gösta Kyntzell design, Wilenius Boatyard built in 1947. Owner in Finland: Elias Erkko, Finnish representative Gold Cup 1947 Long Island Sound, lost to Raili (L-50) in the Finnish qualifications to 1952 Helsinki Olympic Regatta, sold to Canada 1953, nothing heard or tracked since then. "Violet" is known to have been on Lake Ontario in the late 50's, sailed out of Youngstown by Wally Roberts. Do you know where she went? Let us know.
