O'Day Rhodes 19 Sailboat with Specifications and Standard Features (1967)
A relative newcomer to the sailing scene — but already one of the largest classes in the country. Today, there are more than 1500 of these handsome boats sailing— over 200 on Long Island Sound alone — in more than thirty racing fleets.
Rhodes 19 took first place in the racing keel division of the 1967 Heavy Weather One-of-a-Kind race held in San Francisco.
Part of her secret's in the sailing . . . the only way to really appreciate this boat. She can be handled pleasantly and safely whether in calm water or on choppy bays and sounds. Two models — one with centerboard and one with 415-lb. keel —are available.
Her cockpit will hold up to eight, and the shelter cabin keeps two snug during overnight trips. Reasonably priced, of course.
