If you're NOT going to race it ...

There is a small but constant amount of interest from folks in Colorado who would like to buy a Santana 20 locally. If you have one that you'd like to sell, email the particulars to the webmaster and I'll post it ASAP !

Also, this year there is interest in chartering well found boats for the CCR ! Email the webmaster if this sounds like something you could do !
