Dinghy Classes

We are fairly relaxed about what dinghy classes may race at ESC - there is no insistence on members sailing only "adopted" classes.  If a boat has a recognised yardstick, then it's OK.  But: there is no doubt that sailing against other boats of the same class is generally more fun than having to wait for some computer wizard (or not) to work out how well you have done on handicap. 

Darwin would be proud of the way ESC's dinghy fleets have been evolving recently, through a process of natural selection.  The fastest growing fleet in recent times has been the Comet Trio, whose numbers are now up to at least 20.  Unsurprisingly, it's the boats which are suited to our conditions that tend to flourish.
