TYNAJE - US 2222
IMG_0066

After more than 40 years of truly 'sterling' service to the Ross' family and a joy as well as a strong contender to the sailing community on the US East Coast, the family announced in early 2016 that TYNAJE had moved onto a new owner.

Over 2016 and with a modified rig, TYNAJE has already delivered strong
performance over her first season with her new owner.

The Ohlson 38 owners worldwide owe a lot to Peter Ross and his family, who over generations have helped to build the strong track record of these boats. We wish Peter and his family well and we will miss their contributions to the Ohlson 38 community of owners.

ROBERTSON’s GOLLY, sailed by Clare Francis, took part in the 1976 Observer Single Handed Trans Atlantic Race (OSTAR). This forms the basis of a well known book („Come hell or high water“) written by herself.

The ‚Golly‘ is now back into service and has her own website.
Clare Francis skippered "ACCUTREC“, a SWAN 65, as first female skipper in the
1977-78 Whitbread Round The World Race. She is a famous author of novels.

PAGEANT (US 2115) came in second in her class in the 1969 Bermuda Race. Her current name is SPARHAWK. As COPERNICUS she participated in the 98 Pacific Cup.

TYNAJE (US 2222) by Peter Ross and family has been sailed extensively on the US and Canadian East Coast. Her racing success is unmatched.
