Yachting World Dayboat

Yachting World Dayboat

The Yachting World Dayboat is a classic dinghy which blends stability and seaworthiness with good performance. Its length of 14ft (4.3m) and beam of 5ft 8'' (1.7m) means it is a popular family dinghy for safe day sailing and its small foresail can be handled easily by youngsters. It is ideal for a (drying) mooring but the modern combination trailers make launch, sailing and recovery increasingly common. Active racing fleets are located at Poole, Gravesend and Bosham.
