The Past ...
Tarantella II - 113 races, 63 victories
When you consider that Tarantella II still sails with the original owner and that she has been winning the races - e.g. Round Gotland Race - for four decades in the 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000, you easily find that she is the most successful Swan-yacht to date. This also proves that no one can yet tell you how old a Swan can get.
With minimum repairs and no major refits she continues to plove the waves of the Baltic in the same way as 34 years ago. One might think that the yacht should show some signes of age, but as Pekka Koskenkylä and others have stated, Tarantella II is still in remarkable condition and will most likely outlive her owners!
