UK-Cherub Class

Get Your Heart Racing

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.

We came, we froze, we blasted...

{{:news:2013:2015:img_7288.jpg?200 |What a weekend! Saturday 14th March saw 12 cherubs of varying age lined up in the shore for the 2015 post show blast. Wind was on and cold! The water sadly not much warmer.

Dave and Hayley were off first - burning it up in Dave's new ride! Robin unveiled the new look for the banshee ambulance and as is becoming traditional, Born slippy was to be seen with numerous people being introduced to the class, trapeses and the meaning of the word FLAT.

A big thank you to Draycote for hosting the event.

An even bigger thank you has to be given to joe Thomas for sitting in an rib and freezing her metaphorical balls off all in the aid of taking pictures (more to follow)

Roll on this years events.
