Our Boats

Wayfarer

Wayfarer

The Wayfarer is a wooden or fibreglass hulled Bermuda rigged sailing dinghy, often used for short sailing trips as a ‘day boat’. The boat is 15 feet 10 inches (4.82 m) long, and broad and deep enough for three adults to comfortably sail for several hours.

Topper

 

The Topper is an 11 foot sailing dinghy designed by Ian Proctor. The Topper is a one-design boat sailed mostly in the British Isles. It was recognised as an International class by the International Sailing Federation(ISAF). The boat is constructed from polypropylene, and is popular as a racing boat or for sail training.

Laser

 

The International Laser Class sailboat, also called Laser Standard and the Laser One is a popular one-design class of small sailing dinghy. The Laser is one of the most popular single-handed dinghies in the world. As of 2011, there are more than 200,000 boats worldwide. It is robust, simple to rig and sail, and provides very competitive racing due to the very tight class association controls which eliminate differences in hull, sails and equipment.  It is an Olympic class dinghy.

Laser II

The Laser 2 is a double-handed version of the popular Laser one-design class of small sailing dinghy. It is a quick,planing dinghy that differs from the laser in that it has a jib, symmetric spinnaker and a trapeze for the crew.

Laser Pico

The Laser Pico dinghy is a small sailboat designed by Jo Richards in the mid-1990s and used primarily for training and day sailing. It can be crewed by one or two kids or an adult. Current models come equipped with both a mainsail and ajib, but the jib is so small that it is faster sailed single handed using only the mainsail.

Laser Stratos

The Laser Stratos is an all-round cruising and racing boat built by the same company as the famous Laser Standard dinghy. It is built from fibre-glass and foam sandwich.The Stratos is quite spacious and most of the rigging is kept out of the way. The boat can optionally be fitted with trapeze lines and an engine bracket for carrying an outboard engine.

Zephyr

A Zephyr is a small single handed dinghy used in our Stage 1 & 2 courses. This boat is ideal for kids to develop the basics of dinghy sailing and their ability to sail on their own.

RS Tera & RS Feva

At 2.87m the RS Tera is an ideal starter boat for introducing beginners to single-handed dinghy sailing.  It is light, and easy to rig and with a choice of 3 mainsails to suit all sizes and abilities.  And as confidence increases the RS Feva will beckon:  a classic 3-sail layout and the world’s best selling two-person sailboat in recent years, an ISAF International Class, winner of Dinghy of the Year in the USA, Coup de Coeurs in France, an RYA Recognised Junior class…the list of honours goes on and on.  It’s a fantastic experience for youngsters who can learn the thrills of teamwork and develop the skills to bring the best out of a fast and exciting 3-sail dinghy.
