6mR “JOY” is looking for a new home!
During golden 30’s Tore Holm designed several six meter regatta winners. 6mR “JOY” is one of them with typical Tore Holm lines. These boats are very competitive when sailing upwind. With 6mR “JOY” you do not have to worry who is next to you at the starting line.
Year 2011 ended the 1st phase of the extensive restoration program of 6mR “JOY” which was done in M-Yachts, Loviisa. Everything was checked and no compromises were made. The syndicate wanted to restore the speed and glory of 6mR “JOY” as the first owner Hilding Silander planned when purchasing the drawings from Tore Holm and selecting the Wilenius Båtvarv as the builder. Even after the renovation project 6mR “JOY” still has some of the special characteristics of this magnificent boat which could be seen in pictures from 30’s like special shape of the aft opening and long rudder with special bronze fitting.
With current set-up and top condition 6mR “JOY” has proven been fast and competitive. Several regatta wins and even more podium positions in the large and competitive Finnish Six Meter fleet in the last ten years. For the World Cup 2019 in Hanko 6mR “JOY” got the new mast and the complete new set of Grand Prix quality DOYLE Stratis sails. Modeling of sails, rig and boat were done with most modern design programs in Doyle in New Zealand. In the
hands of even more competitive crew the result could have been even better than 8th out of 32 boats.
