White Cloud - legendary inshore/offshore racer is for sale!
White Cloud was purpose built by Cookson Boats for Mr. Cookson himself. She jumped onto the international racing scene as part of the Kenwood Cup winning New Zealand team in Hawaii. She was sold to a US owner in Seattle and was consistently one of the top boats in the PNW.White Cloud was purchased by a new owner in San Diego, CA and went through a comprehensive upgrade program to optimize for offshore racing. She has won class in the SD-PV Race twice and is ready to go around the cans or stretch out offshore.
Of the Cookson 12's, White Cloud was fitted out with a comfortable interior featuring a salon table and v berth along with two large quarter berths.For offshore racing there are pipe berths in the aft quarters and one on the starboard salon settee since you want people resting on starboard for West Coast offshore racing!
There is a full fresh suite of racing sails and a stand up nav station with all the gear you'll need for offshore compliance.
This is a great opportunity to buy a fast offshore racer that can also be cruised at a good entry level price!
