Int. 5.5 Metre 70th Anniversary Yearbook

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the International 5.5 Metre Class and the 100th Scandinavian Gold Cup later this year, the International 5.5 Metre Association has published a commemorative yearbook.

Edited and compiled by Robert Deaves, it is packed full of stories about the people, the boats and the races that have defined this once Olympic class, as well as a recap of the 2018 season

With contributions from many of the sailors who have been and are still involved in the class the Yearbook is an attractive, 144 page, A4, photo heavy book that will immediately appeal to all those who have sailed or still sail a 5.5 Metre.
