FLY was made by C.M. Nielsen&Co. in Nykøbing Falster, Denmark.
The boat was ordered from the company by Ivar Knudsen in 1926 and it was designed by Johan Anker.
FLY was registered in Denmark with id D29. The next known owner of FLY after Ivar Knudsen is Niels Thomsen who bought the boat in 1942.
He and his son Jörgen Thomsen were the owners of the boat until 2003. They then sold the boat to Swedish man Per-Erik Kalström.
He used the boat mainly for casual sailing trips. I bought the boat from Kalström in 2013 and it is now located in Finland.
When FLY was in Sweden some parts of it were repaired.
The old keel plank and some lower boardplanking were replaced by Thomas Larsson Yachtsnickeriet AB.
I intend to restore the boat honoring its history by preserving the original model so that it would serve better as an raceboat.
FLY will race again with id FIN-75.
Ohjelmassa olivat seuran viikkokisat ja nautiskelua Saimaalla.
