Cadet

The boat was purposely designed to be too small for an adult to sail but with all the attributes of a racing dinghy, including a spinnaker. For many years all Cadets were made of wood but for some time craft have been made of glass fibre which of course means low maintenance. Both wooden and glass fibre are sailed competitively.

The Cadet provides a three sail experience where the helm and the crew must work together as a team to obtain the best results. Crews will start at 8 or 9 years old and then begin to helm at 12 or 13 but this is largely dependent on size and ability. The class finishes for children when they turn 17.

It has main and jib sails with a symmetrical spinnaker and all the control lines associated with a performance dinghy. A number of International Sailors and Olympic Medalists have sailed Cadets and have been World Champions in the class.

Crew: 2 man crew, between the ages of 8 and 17.
Dimensions: 3.2 meters in length and 54kg.
Sail Area: 4.55 / 4.65 square meters.
Class: Restricted (hull shape remains the same from year to year)
Characteristics: Perfect sailing boat to learn to sail on, giving you 3 sail experience.
