This versatile 19 footer in just a few years has become one of the largest one design racing classes in the United States today; over 900 boats in use.

Its fast sailing ability, safety, and its ruggedness in rough water have brought this about.

Because it's available in keel or centerboard version, it can be used in shallow water, too.

For those that wish to race, established racing fleets are found in almost every part of the country.

Her roomy cockpit can seat six or more very comfortably and the sides are high enough to keep small fry safely inside. The Cuddy cabin provides a wonderful arrangement for overnight excursions, protection from the weather, and storage space for sails and gear. Designed by Philip L. Rhodes.
