Flapper - 6 Metre

Boat Name: Flapper

Sail: N 71, D 60

Year Built: 1939

Designer: Christian Jensen

Builder: Anker & Jensen

N 71 Flapper was built in Norway just prior to the outbreak of World War II. Later sold to Denmark, she was the alternate for that country's 6 meter entry in the 1948 Olympics. Flapper made her way to Maine in the early 50's, but never took part in the post-war six meter scene on Long Island Sound or on Lake Ontario. She was used as a cruiser for a little while, but has now been returned to racing trim and continues to race everywhere and anywhere there's good competition.
