The Yacht’s Story

From Roger Raymond, 2008:

I purchased Le Jag from Phil Childs in April 2007. He had recently purchased Le Jag from Norman Mc Gill, HYC. I have moved the boat to RFBYC, sail number RF355.  Le Jag is a Mk 2 keel and rudder with twin spreader rig S&S 34.

The boat was built by Swarbricks’ for Ray Lynch in 1981 as Trim and was hull 97. Over the last decade it seems as Le Jag has enjoyed a relaxed cruising mode with gentle trips to Rottnest.  I have removed some of the cruising set up and recently brought the boat up to Cat 3 for off shore racing.
