I have thought about taking Ainia in a Newport-Bermuda Race in honor of the boat's participation in the 1980s (likely 1984 at least), but it is a very costly undertaking when you include everything. If you look at the boats in the Cruising Divisions they are from the right side of the tracks - and yes, I know about the other races to Bermuda and might consider one of those too.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
