Dinghy Classes.

PERMITTED BOATS

Due to the size of water (and lease) we do restrict the size of dinghy

No class of dinghy greater than 14ft. No Asymmetric and/or Bowsprit. No Trapeze. No Wings. (Moth/Blaze etc.)

Currently the most popular classes of boat raced are: Laser, GP14, Solo.

Specifically aimed at the junior sailor we have the Topper, Optimist, RS Feva, Topaz and Pico.

SUNDAY RACING.

The start of the 2017 Spring Series will see changes to the Fleets and Fleet starting times.

Start 1.    11.oo Laser Class

Start 2     11.03 Solo

Start 3     11.06 GP14 / Handicap fleet.

LASER / LASER RADIAL

The current fleet consists of sailors of all age ranges, but is still very competitive. As of the beginning of 2017 fleet  numbers seems to be on the increase.

SOLO

The current fleet is seeing a rapid rise in numbers,and like the Laser consists of all age ranges.

The Solo has been awarded fleet status for 2017.

GP14 / HANDICAP

The GP has remains a popular class within the club, as it has done for over 40 years at Aylesbury.

Sadly the current fleet has seen a decline in its racing numbers, but for those still racing its remains friendly, competitive and second to none with their hospitality off the water.

The Handicap fleet is for boats not awarded individual class status. Currently the fleet consists of Comet, Europe, Mirror and Toppers.

From the start of 2017 the GP14 fleet will start and race with the Handicap Fleet.
