The S-2 7.9 is a Graham and Schlageter design that has proven to be one of the premier racer/cruiser and one-design sailing vessels of all time.  With her dagger board keel (600#) she is easily launched and retrieved with a trailer and the deck-hinged mast enables the crew to step the rig without an overhead apparatus.  The board is raised with a winch on the cabin top. Below she has berths for a crew of four so this boat is a great over the road regatta-hopping vessel as well as a comfortable weekender. The headroom is 5’5”. The dagger board trunk doubles as a fore and aft bulkhead providing privacy in the head area.  This boat now has been raced casually in a local sailing club under two owners in the last several years and then before, with the previous owner who has enjoyed an impressive race record at the top and local levels: First - Key West Race Week 2005, Second - Key West Race Week 2007, First – LD Regatta SCSC, First - Charleston Race Week 2007, Second - Annapolis NOODS 2006. The cockpit is 8’ long and self-bailing. The boat has always been kept up and many upgrades added. In 2002/3 she was Awlgripped and a new nonskid applied. The upholstery was replaced in 2002 and the interior repainted in 2006. Most of the running rigging has been replaced a while back.
