"Described by many discerning sailors as "probably the handsomest one- design yachts on the water," the beauty of the shields is matched by its outstanding performance, durability, ease of handling and lasting resale value. In only a few decades, the yacht has attained "classic" status, attracting some of the world's top sailors, starting with legendary Cornelius Shields (after whom the class was named). With superior double-hull construction, the shields has effectively shown no signs of aging: the earliest boats built remain totally competitive of the newest units made" Sailing World
Sleigh Ride is a beautiful day sailor with many new sails, and 5-year old rigging. She is a Chris-Craft built boat, who has dipped her keel in races from around Chicago to the long island sound. She is ready for a race or to be sailed for a comfortable afternoon cruise.
