Sirus has a very interesting history, and one that would take too much time here to recount. A complete account of her life is available by request but, the main highlights can be summarized as follows. Sirus was built in San Isidro, Argentina and launched in 1952. She was campaigned in the River Plate Racing Circuit and competed in an eleven -day classic from Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro. She was kept Buenos Aires until 1974 when she was shipped to Trinidad and then sailed to the U.S.V.I. and on to Puerto Rico. From there it was on to Moorhead City, NC (nine days and three hours at sea) and from there, on to the Chesapeake Bay. She underwent a refit in 1991 and had much new equipment and another extensive amount of work in 1994 to present, after purchase by the Genthers. She continues to sail the waters of the Chesapeake and is respected and loved by all who see her.
