A maximum of 650 tickets will be sold. Raffle drawing on June 15, 2014. Proceeds from this raffle going toward the Ensigns Forever Program, a lease initiative that is helping fund new members in fleets around the USA.
The winner will receive a new Ensign Classic (hull number 2032), standard Ensign Spars racing package, Ensign Spars deluxe trailer, a Honda 2.3 outboard, and a set of sails.
“The Ensign is an outstanding day sailor, a great family boat, and a fun boat to race,” said Mike Macina, Ensign Class Association Commodore
The class is also continuing with its Junior Sailing Initiative where fleets are teaming up with Junior Sailing Programs to expose youth sailors to keel boat sailing skills and to develop opportunities for junior teams to sail regionally and in the National Championship.
The Ensign sailboat is the largest class of full keel boats in North America. It was designed by Carl Alberg and built by Pearson Yachts of Portsmouth, Rhode Island who manufactured nearly 1800 boats from 1962 through 1983. Its popularity, rather than declining with the advent of very high performance boats, has been on a major upswing.
