Description: Santa Cruz Made, 1978 Wilderness 21′ Sailboat & Trailer

We have a 1978 Wilderness 21′ for sale.

Designed by Chuck Burns, these fiberglass monohull boats were first produced by shipbuilder Lynn Daugherty and John Josephs of Wilderness Boat Works of Santa Cruz, in California. This boat was the tenth (10th) of about eighty made. (See the Original Brochure) Many owners of the Wilderness 21 (W21) loved racing them in the bay and offshore as well. The Wilderness 21s are known for being nice light boats, and well suited for single & double-handing, with a fine entry and high prismatic coefficient for speed and easy surfing in swell.

Chuck Burns recalls “2 W-21s sailed in the single-handed race from San Francisco to Kauai and the most notorious W-21 was Little Rascal sailed by Amy Boyer to victory in the women’s division of the Mini-Transat race from Penzance England to Tenerife (Canary Islands) and thence to Antigua, West Indies.”

Out of the yard in 1978, these boats quickly won accolades, including:

1st overall in the L.A. Midwinters

1st overall in the Huston Y.C. Series

2nd overall, 1st in class with the Galvaston Bay Cruising Association

1st overall in the Southern California Yachting Association (PHRF)

1st overall in the Trans Tahoe California

Today, these boats are the perfect complement to your Made in Santa Cruz fleet or flotilla, depending on size. Consider entering this W21 in this years, Made In Santa Cruz Race Week (2013).
