Welcome to the Tartan 37 Sailing Association Web Site


The Tartan 37 was designed by Sparkman & Stephens.  Tartan Yachts produced 486 of these classic boats from 1976 through 1988, and most are still sailing today.

When he receives a cryptic call for help from his old college roommate Rich Perry, the dream quickly becomes a nightmare. A sudden turn of events has left Rich targeted for death by a powerful, ruthless adversary, and only Paul is left to help him survive. They plan to cross Lake Superior and find safety in Canada, but Rich’s enemies are closing in.
