1989 IOD "Dark Horse"
Currently located at Seawanhanka Yacht Club in Oyster Bay and is ready start racing. The boat includes a full sail inventory and is a proven race winner in Long Island Sound.
A 33-foot open-cockpit sloop, the International One Design was conceived by American yachtsman Cornelius Shields, who in the 1930s commissioned Bjarne Aas of Norway to develop the working plans for its construction, according to the Northeast Harbor Fleet web site. The result was a handsome sailboat with long overhangs, a graceful sheer, a deep and narrow hull, and a lofty rig.
Typically sailed with one to three crew in addition to the skipper, IODs are raced in fleets in Northeast Harbor, Marblehead, Nantucket, Fishers Island, Long Island Sound, Manhattan, San Francisco, Bermuda, Norway, Sweden, the UK, and Canada.
Local series racing and interclub regattas are highly competitive, attracting sailors with deep talent.
If you've been in the market for an IOD, "Dark Horse" is the boat for you.
