The Sport

A fun and fast sailing dinghy with plenty of space and a nature that makes performance sailing comfortable. The Sport comes in two versions: the 14 and the 16; the latter being essentially a larger version of the former but built with all the same design and proportions.

The Sport is a hybrid that offers a high performance sailing experience in a forgiving and comfortable environment. It might be a compromise for those who seek top level racing competition but it is great for sailors who like the idea of a thrilling sail with a little bit more comfort and stability.

She has the option of a trapeze, has a stable hull shape and a powerful, but not too powerful, rig. The spinnaker works from a fixed pole.

The Sport has self-bailing flaps at the stern and is ideal for fun sailing and a good choice for family sailing when the whole family have an interest. The 16 can take a larger crew and will comfortably accommodate the more adventurous family. Both versions come with a three year hull guarentee.
