The contenders shared a course with the FDs in Holland last week. Both classes looked superb.

If the thread is about being "photogenic", then IMO all skiffs are out.  They make make for good action pics, but photogenic they are not.

It has to have elegant lines (so that counts the RS300 well and truly out), and a traditional sailplan.

So, for me it would have to be the Thames A rater, Norfolk Punt, possibly a Javelin or Mk9 Merlin (before they got all wide an saucery). 
Never sheet out.

If this wasn't in the dinghy thread I'd have nominated 6M and/or Dragons as both are simply beautiful IMO, but as its dinghies I will disagree and stick with i14's, a great and fittingly photogenic class which exemplifies the best of British dinghy development
