Painted Lady lake sailingPainted Lady is Thistle number 643. She was built in 1951. Matt Foreman found her in a barn in Ohio in 1986 and have been improving her ever since. This class, designed by Sandy Douglas, was started in 1946 and is now the largest one design class in the US with over 4,000 boats. Actively raced, the old “woodies” are still very competitive with the modern fiberglass boats. Painted Lady still wins more than her share of races against brand new boats.
