The International 2.4 Meter class is a highly competitive single-handed keelboat. The boat is not only the single-handed event at the Paralympics, but fleets now race throughout the world. The class continues to thrive with the largest 2.4 manufacturer in Finland – Oy Charger Composites Ab – producing an estimated 100 boats per year.
The 2.4 class rules are structures so that no competitors gain an advantage because of financial or physical means. The 2.4 racing environment ensures that the best sailing and tactics win rather than the best equipment.
This boat has a number of tuning and trimming options, so the Ullman Sails 2.4 Sailing Guide should be regarded as only one suggestion on how to sail the boat. Other techniques and trim may prove to work better and faster with your custom setup.
