which boat should i sail
This summary of classes is to help you choose a boat to sail at Staunton Harold . It does NOT cover all the classes that are available, but instead concentrates on the ones that are particularly suitable for racing at SHSC and the size of our water. Those classes marked FLEET are currently popular at SHSC.
Junior and Youth sailors tend to sail Optimists, Toppers, Teras and Fevas with some families enjoying the Mirror dinghy.
Choosing a class that has a regular following at the club is very important:
- You immediately “join the community” of that class.
- You can get advice and guidance, help and support from existing class members.
- There is a range of second-hand boats, bits and a good source of second-hand sails if yours need replacing!
- When the time comes to upgrade or replace the boat, you should still find a good second-hand market.
