May Edition of Sailing World: Showcases First 36.7


As many of you get your May 2009 Issue of Sailing World magazine this week, you will find the First 36.7 One-Design class showcased on page 77 under their 1-Design of the month section. The section offers a breakdown of the class approved OD upgrades to tackle and rigging and referenced Harken Part numbers.

As the Fastest growing One-Design Class, the First 36.7 continues to grow on Lake Michigan with new members for the 2009 season. While many other manufacturers portray their offerings as a class one-design and struggle to get the critical mass for class starts, the Farr Designed First 36.7 is it. With over 400 boats sold in North America and 30 on Lake Michigan, the First 36.7 offers the perfect blend of class racer with the ability to cruise with family and friends.

The First 36.7 has a complete OD schedule that includes class sections in all the major regattas (COLORS, NOOD, MAC and Verve Cup). This year's North American Championship will also be within travelling distance of the area. It will be held at Bayview Yacht Club in Detroit, MI August 27-30, 2009.
