My N12s from 84 I think and you can tell . Still a good boat though, she has upset  many  ents and lasers in club races.

200s from around 1995 I think and is a lot better boat than a lot of the newer ones I have seen.

Fireball was measured in 1981

Contender .. Well .. I have no idea!! I know it was built in Australia ... (AUS368) but havnt been able to track it down to a rough time zone.

Going by the above post ... I'd guess 1980 ish. Probably earlier.

And of course the Vareo .. 2001 (ish)

My vintage Cherub was built in New Zealand in 1971. I have an "Eleven Plus" in the garage which is *very* slowly getting done up which must be very late 50s or early 60s I guess. Rupert probably has older boats...

One of my ICs is from 1947......the other, yet to be restored, is a B Class sailing canoe from 1928, though she was registered as an IC in about 1937.
