NY-9 (Adelaide II) Amorita was given her new name by her second owner in 1910, and has been unchanged ever since. Thus Amorita is generally synonymous with NY-9. After many loving caretakers, 30+ years in the great lakes, and several refits, she found herself in dire-straights in the late-70’s. Her original total refit took place in 1981 by her current owner and then extensive upgrades/re-fits were completed in 1994 and in 2005. In 1995 she re-entered the rolls of the NYYC where she has since regularly participated in the Annual Regatta & Cruise among numerous regattas in the region. In 2007, she was the victim of a horrendous crash that sent her to the bottom but survived with an amazing story of her rescue and rebuild. She winters in Mystic, CT and Summers in Newport, Rhode Island.
