Squib

The National Squib has one of the largest National Championship fleets of any class, ranking consistently in the top ten – and in the top three of adult two person boats. There were 108 Squibs racing in the 2009 National Championship and 70 made the trip to Dun Laoghaire in 2010, in spite of the recession and the long distance. Squibs attract women and men of all ages, from some very successful teenagers in Ireland and on the Solent, to older sailors enjoying their Squibbing after successes in a variety of dinghy classes. Squib fleets are to be found all over the British Isles, several flourish in Ireland, also in Scotland, North Wales, Lancashire, Yorkshire, the Midlands, East Anglia and all along the South coast – Kent, Sussex, Solent, Dorset and Devon. Additionally there are sightings of Squibs in the British Virgin Islands, Barbados, Australia, South Africa and closer to home in Norway, Denmark and Germany. Squibs are for everyone – everywhere!
