Welcome back to the Regional Fleet, Sheila Borman and Tom Bennett

On November 23rd, Brian Simmons and Theresa O’Brien of Quadra Island sold White Rabbit, Hull #91 (listed April 2, 2021, for CDN$7000) to Sheila Borman and Tom Bennett of Comox, BC, which makes it the 9th transaction of the year and the 3rd 242 in Comox!

Tom raced on 242's for 6 years in the late 80's, and overall he and Sheila have sailed and raced for 40 years on the Coast. They've had powerboats since 2009 but recently sold their 26’ Nordic Tug to go back to "the bright side" and keep everything simple, which will involve day sailing and maybe some racing!

With a white hull, White Rabbit was previously owned for many years by Sidney North Saanich Yacht Club and it was used extensively for club racing and casual day sailing.

The boat came with:

  • 2 mains, 3 jibs and a chute. The UK Dacron main, jib and spinnaker were in good shape, and the others were well used. 

  • heavy duty road trailer with new tires and new wiring

  • bottom paint

Recent structural upgrades included:

  • rebedding and refastening the keel

  • repair and refastening of pushpit and pulpit

  • replacement of interior wood bulkheads 

  • also some interior finishing

A Measurement Certificate was underway. 

Welcome back to the Regional Fleet, Sheila and Tom, and enjoy your 242
