Classes of Boats in Our Fleet

Photo of 3 Optimists

Optimist Dinghy

The Optimist Class is the largest and fastest growing International Sailing Class in the world. This is undoubtedly because it is the ideal youth training boat. It is safe and simple enough for very young children to sail, yet lively and exciting enough for kids up to 15 to race in international competition.

Length: 7' 6.5"
Sail area: 35 square feet

Photo three Widgeons


The Widgeon is an excellent all-around displacement hulled sailing dinghy--simple enough for young children to handle, but large enough to comfortably carry adults. We have used the Widgeon with great success for over 25 years at all levels from beginner through advanced. They are stable, responsive, rigged with all the standard sail controls, and have complete spinnaker gear.

Length: 12' 4"
Sail area: 90 square feet

Club 420

The Club 420 is a lightweight, high-performance, planing-hulled dinghy that is super fast and exciting to sail. It also provides the additional excitement and challenge of a spinnaker and trapeze. Over 100 schools and colleges across the country already have active racing fleets and the class is rapidly becoming even more popular. For those who want to race, there are ample opportunities to compete in the 420 on local through international levels. Many Olympic sailing champions trained in the Club 420 as junior sailors.

Length: 13' 9"
Sail area: 110 square feet
