Comes with Spinnaker and all the typical accessories+ a trailer. Originally bought from Charles Dufresne of Greenwich CT several months ago. He failed to mention some issues. I had to reseal the top of the centerboard housing, clean the sails and fix part of the trailer. I have tested it 4 times to make sure it is solid. It sails well however It is a trainer boat for teens and a daysailer for 2 adults. I was looking something with higher performance like a Lightning which is far more expensive. It's an attractive and classic boat that will teach you how to sail. $1900. Contact Peter at 703 861 0289 evenings. I'm in Northern VA and travel to NY periodically.

5/17/2016  Need help! I have owned Blue Jay 197 since 1968 (she has a plaque from the 1955 Olympic Trials…presumably as a trainer for the Olympic sailboat at the time, the Lightning). I have cared for her very lovingly since I have owned her. She has been in dry storage continuously (other than when she has been sailed) and has been restored with a new deck and other updates over the years. I have sailed BJ 197 all over San Francisco Bay when I was in medical training from 1968 until 1975 at UCSF, and have sailed her at Tahoe and a few other places. She has been moved around the country with my career at UCSF, UCD CDC and NIH, and now resides in my garage in Bethesda, Maryland. I am looking for a competent restorer to help me with restoration of the mast (the masthead needs some work) and, possibly, to purchase a new set of sails (although I would not be averse to updating my current sails which I had custom-made in San Francisco in the early 1970s). Any suggestions for resources in my area (Bethesda, MD, Annapolis, Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay area) would be most be appreciated. Contact Trent htmackay@gmail.com
