Sprint 15

Sprint 15 Fleet. This catamaran forms the largest fleet at Instow with good regular numbers sailing having fun both on and off the water.

The Boat. Formally known as “Dart 15” We sail it in Sport mode, that is single handed, main and jib sails, with trapeze. This cat has been sailed at Instow for several years because it is well suited to the conditions with no dagger boards the boat can sail up the rivers without running aground yet handles extremely well in estuary races, hence the large fleet.

The boat is equally suited to a wide range of crew weights and sizes. Club racing results show that from teenagers to pensioners, women and men, skinnies and tubbies all are very competitive.

The Class is the only single design class so we enjoy non handicap racing, first over the line is the winner. Largest class turnouts for racing. Wide range of catamaran sailing experience from new comers to old hands. New members to the fleet find that they are made welcome with help and encouragement from the rest of the sailors, well until they start to win too much. We have social events through the year to involve partners and have fun. 

Club Sprint 15.  This has been purchased to enable suitably qualified Cadets to transition into the Cat Fleet.   It may be sailed 2 up.  Helm and crew need to be under 16 years of age.  It may be sailed in Sport mode, with crew trapezing, with a PY of 933.
