1966 CAL 36

San Diego, California


36' Cal 36 '66 "Clair De Lune"

This well-maintained, classic performance cruiser designed by Bill Lapworth had a successful PHRF racing career through 2010. She had been upgraded with a taller rig (3' increase in 'P' over standard mast) which made her ideal for Southern California sailing conditions (both racing and cruising).

CLAIR DE LUNE shows pride of ownership and she is a true classic that is easy to handle and a joy to sail.
