Question Raven sailboats

Hello- New to list.
Looking for information on sailing class "Raven".
Raced on Great South Bay Long Island NY.
My uncle hand-built "Torneremo" and raced her for years out of Bellport.
Eager for any info about this boat or Raven class racing sailboats in general.
Many thanks in advance-
Stevie Balch

Nice boats. They were a very early 24 foot planning, one-design racig class. Not bad daysailors either. It would appear that they are still being raced. From the US Sailing One design site, their class dues are paid up and they even have a class representative.

Despite it's age, a well-sailed Raven is still competitive today. There were two at my former lake, and one of them was a repeat club champion. I sailed one on numerous occasions, and thought it had very nice sailing qualities. As I recall, both of those boats had an apparent weakness in the centerboard trunk, but the owner of one had it reinforced by adding a brace, which apparently solved the problem completely.
