The Landing School 26 Weekender was designed to be a high-quality daysailer/weekender. She is intended for the experienced yachtsman who appreciates first-class construction, but whose schedule and/or preference demands the ease and practicality of a daysailer easily managed by one or two people in most conditions. The LS 26 design (by Maine-based Naval Architect Ken Rusinek) combines classic, traditional good looks above the waterline with a contemporary, high-performance under-body and appendages. The hull is balanced, with a relatively narrow beam, moderate displacement, fin keel, and a spade rudder. Stability comes from a low center of gravity rather than a wide beam, thereby allowing the LS-26 Weekender to stay on her feet and maintain her balance as the wind pipes up. “Whistle” formerly “VIM” was acquired in 2020 and moored in Stamford, CT at the Stamford Yacht Club. Lovingly maintained and lightly sailed the last two seasons. “Whistle” has seen many upgrades prior to our purchase and since has received fresh brightwork varnish, new folding propeller, new running rigging and brand new sails.
