LASER / LASER RADIAL

The current fleet consists of sailors of all age ranges, but is still very competitive.

SOLO

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

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, GP14 and Toppers.
