History of the boat:
ON THE EDGE was purchase in 2000 from the Mt.Vernon Yacht Club. It is the pocket version of S2’s popular 7.9 meter, designed to match performance aspects in a reduced size. It is a good all-around club racer/day sailer, with accommodations that make her a weekend cruiser. The proportionally large mainsail and high aspect fractional rig give her acceleration and quickness as well as responsiveness and control in any sailing conditions.
