    Your best bet may be trying to find her by her number, N 2700, in the fleet lists. Owners and names change, but as long as she is still in Norge, numbers do not

    I'm not sure how it works over there, but in the US a lot of the IOR and tonners end up in the general fleets (PHRF, IMS, club fleets etc). Don't the race committees and yacht clubs have fleet lists?

    Thanks again! I have contacted yacht clubs in the region where this yacht last has been seen, but it was about 20 years ago. I have also contacted yacht organizations that one can assume have knowledge, or can give some guidance

    If the boat still exists,it may be on a cradle at a remote spot in a marina.That is often the fate of of retired racing boats since they don't function as well as purpose designed cruisers and may be dependent on several hefty bodies on the rail for stability combined with a handy rating.It doesn't mean they are bad boats but they may not be sought after.A call to a marina or two in the area where the boat was last known to be might produce some leads.
