Way back in 2007 Stefan Sebrechts in Auckland (Whistler) sent in some photos of Falcon 24's he has collected. Hopefully, we will get more info on these specific boats. Manari was listed in the 2001 Royal NZ Yachting Result List as an S&S 24. It seems that Falcon 24s and S&S 24's may have raced under the same rating. Anyway, these are Stefan's photos. We standby for the owner to check in?
