Milton Thrasher: 1970 Irwin 23 #24 with original sails off Sarasota Sailing Squadron
The 1970 Irwin 23 was one of the "hot" mini-cruisers in the MORC days before the advent of the J-24 which set an entirely new level of performace expectation. It is a wonderful example of early
fiberglass full keel boats that has stood the test of time. It is beleived that over 450 were built from 1969 through 1976 or so. This boat is dry sailed using a 6000# capacity hoist. Learn all about it at
It is a "Project in Progress" as a wing keel and tall rig with a 33% larger mainsail are being adapted to it to improve
its performance for possible
Florida West Coast PHRF racing.
