It is sailed at many clubs in the UK and all around the world.

This yacht has 4 rig sizes to suit the wind strength. Certificates and sail numbers are obtainable from the DF Racing UK National Class Association at no cost.
Rules for the racing of this yacht are the same as for all classes. Copies of these rules can be obtained from the MYA or from the club.
