Streaker

Streaker

The Streaker dinghy was designed by Jack Holt in 1975. His rationale was to design a 'light weight Solo' as he was finding it difficult to haul his Solo up the slipway as he got older. At 48kgs the Streaker shows exemplary good manners with its stayed una-rig sail plan. It is an easy boat to handle no matter how inexperienced the helm might be.
