The Blue Dragon Pram is a durable, self-bailing dinghy that is a perfect training boat for beginner sailors. The simple design is very low maintenance, and offers a platform very similar to an Optimist for kids to get excited about sailing.
30 Optimist Dinghies
Originally designed in 1947, the Optimist Dinghy has become the world standard as both the introductory junior trainer and a premier one design racing class. It is the only sailboat designed specifically for children allowing them to learn the essentials of sailing without danger or fear. It is also the biggest and fastest growing racing class in the world with over 300,000 hulls built worldwide.
18 FJs (Flying Juniors)
FJs are a standard in high school and college programs. This boat is a great entry boat for our sailors who or moving up to double handed boats as well as our sailors looking for summer adventure sailing. Our high school and college programs train in these boats throughout the Spring and Fall.
The Club 420 is a two person dingy which forms the base of many local, high school and collegiate programs in North America. Simple for beginning sailors and yet challenging enough for collegiate champions. The Club 420 offers more learning opportunities than any other double-handed boat. The travel racing team competes in these boats around the Chesapeake Bay all summer. Our high school and college programs train and compete in these boats all Spring and Fall.
12 RS Fevas
The RS Feva is a new high performance two person dingy. They are new to the United States but very popular in Europe. High performance does not mean beginners can't handle them! These boats will be ideal for the child who is sick of the Opti because it is not exciting enough for them. They have an asymmetrical spinnaker and will sail fast.
The laser is a one person dingy which can be sailed by "teenagers" and adults alike. It is one of the most popular single-handed boats in the world. It is simple to rig but it is still very fast. This class provides very competitive racing.
