The Carl Alberg designed Ensign is a class and traditional sloop with a full keel and attached rudder.  She has a nice over hand at the stern and a pretty shear with all teak coamings.  Her beginnings started with Alberg’s commissioned design for a MORC one-design boat of which 350 were built.  But they had an interior for cruising despite her racing purpose and there was an urge for a similar boat with a larger cockpit (8’8”) and less cabin (but sleeps 2). Thus berthed the Ensign with the same hull designed for one-design racing.  Her mast was moved forward to accommodate a larger mainsail and smaller fore triangle.  She was an instant success and fleets shot up around the country.  Still raced today, she is also still built today.  This boat raced regularly not only with the Wayzata Yacht Club on Lake Minnetonka, but also was campaigned in various regional regattas throughout the land.  The current owner is getting out as he claims he is too old to dance on the deck anymore.  It’s time for the next dancers.
