How good are you at identifying sailboats from photos? Reader Chris Juhasz sent us a mystery to solve with the photo below, saying, “I’ve had this photo, artwork since around 1975ish. Can anyone help me learn more about it? It is signed Gilpin.” Chris added, “I grew up in SoCal sailing, casual racing, if there is such a thing around Long Beach and San Pedro. I sold my boat, a Newport 30, over ten years ago when I moved to Idaho. I was pleased to be included in Latitude 38 about 15 years ago when I was lucky enough to spend time sailing around the Caribbean with the late Mike Harker on Wanderlust.”
Can any of our readers help him out? Those are classic sails when you look at the cut of the spinnaker and narrow-paneled main.
Does anyone know the boat, the year, the location? The artist?
