UK Cherub Class

The Cherub is a two-person 12 foot racing dinghy with asymmetric spinnaker and twin trapezes. Just twelve feet long, weighing around 70kgs fully rigged for sailing, the Cherub combines spectacular performance with the “on the edge” handling characteristics only found in true lightweight skiffs.

The Cherub rules are simple and allow for maximum flexibility for designers, allowing boats to be created to incorporate sailor's own ideas. Also meaning the class develops over time as techniques, materials and ideas improve. All this makes the Cherub one of the most interesting and innovative of all dinghies: The challenge extends from the sailing skills to setting up the boat to suit the sailor, and maybe even designing and building, too.|

The light weight, high performance, development class.

Nationals 2020 and 70th Anniversary Nationals in 2021 plus a special Carnac visit

Your events team are delighted to confirm the 2020 Nationals will be hosted by Mumbles Yacht Club in South Wales from August 22 - 25th. We had a great Nationals there a few years ago so I expect another fantastic event next August.

The Nationals in 2021 are planned to be at the National Sailing Academy at Portland with sailing in Portland Harbour. The dates are just after the Weymouth Dinghy Regatta so we can make a week of it. The planned dates for our 70th Anniversary Nationals are Tuesday 6th to Friday 9th July 2021. The Weymouth Regatta will be the 3/4th July.

For our 70th year we are also planning a special visit as a class to the Carnac skiff event in early September 2021 so make sure this is in your plans and calendar
