Classes of boat

The island's north coast offers a large expanse of open but sheltered water making it ideal for all classes of dinghies and catamarans. From Mirror to 49er, Sprint 15 to Tornado - there's no restriction on the type of dinghy or catamaran that can be sailed.

Some of the boats currently at the club include:

Dinghies: 49er, 505, Osprey, Laser 4000, Laser 2, Solo, Laser 3000, 420, Blaze, Laser, Topper
Cats: Dart 18, Sprint 15, Shadow X, Nacra F18, Nacra 6, Tornado

Racing is currently organised on a handicap basis, but there are small fleets of:

Dart 18s Lasers Solos Ospreys Blazes
