The 2.4 metre originated in Stockholm in 1983. It is a thoroughbred racer that has the complexity of a sophisticated keelboat with the fingertip feeling of a dinghy. Since the helmsperson sits down in the boat facing forward with all of the trim controls within arms reach, the sailing is not physically demanding and these attributes make the 2.4mR ideal for disabled sailors.
Sail area: 8m2

We sail windward/leeward races on Saturday afternoons in the summer and on Sunday afternoons in the winter. As well as a major league we have a handicap league running concurrently.
During the Summer Season there are Thursday afternoon practice racing sessions commencing at 14.00hrs.
We have several club boats in our fleet. Should anyone like to have a trial run to experience keelboat sailing and/or racing then this can be arranged by contacting the class captain.
