Fast handicap dinghies regularly sailing at the club include Lasers (4.7, Radial and standard rigs), Laser 2000s, RS 100, 200 and 300. In the hotly contested Merrydown Regatta and popular Frostbite open series the fleet also includes multihulls, Solos and RS Aeros.
There is regular club racing from March to December with courses set in and around Woodside Bay. Launching is easy using the club or shared Wightlink slipway with dinghies closely accessible in the club dinghy park.
Laser 4.7s and Radials are the main training dinghy for the advanced cadets with on and off the water training on Friday nights. There is also Laser winter fitness and sail training in January, February and March.
If you are new to fast handicap racing there is a club Laser with full rig available to hire. Alternatively you could crew for one of the two person boats.
