R's are 12-ft 9", No Min weight. Restricted to 13.5? upwind and kites
must fit in a circumference of X? can't remember that bit.

12's are 12-ft long ( they may have move to 3.7 metric ), 45-kg ( without
pole ) min weight and unrestricted sail plan.

UK Cherubs are 3.7m or 12-ft 1.4", min weight 50-kg (with retracting
pole), restricted to 15.5 upwind 21 downwind.

AU Cherubs are single wire with less sail than all the above and a load
more restrictions. Here's the AU Cherub site for comparison.

Like the other posters have said best to have a look at the respective
classes websites and find out the details.



[QUOTE=Prince Buster] Can someone actually tell me the difference
between a 12ft skiff , an R
Class, and a Cherub?  Ive always been under the impression that a
12 just has more sail area but what are the real differences?<!--

Follow these links for the class rules and work it out for yourself.

Sorry but as you asked, your homework for tonight is to dissect the rules and post a reply, laying out the differences

If you want to sail 12's in the UK why not start by buying a UK Cherub and if you enjoy it and want to do more then you can sell it without loosing much money and import a 12

if you decide that it is not for you then you will not have lost much money.
If it doesn't break it's too heavy; if it does it wasn't built right

Err .... Dude we do already! Our boat currently has C-Tec spars and a set
of Ken Fyfes sails althought the Big Set and now from RED EYE's.

I was talking to Mr van Munster early / mid last year about a Woof / Road
Kill hull. But the build was getting a bit expensive by the time you add
shipping and import duty e.t.c, e.t.c

I'm not to keen on CST spars but there is at least one UK Cherub with
them.

But thanks for rasing the names alot of people over her won't of heard of
this seriously good kit.

Sails either from Fyfe or Gemmells


And you can go racing with the best kit, and take it home with you.


Or I know of 2 12s going for $500 with a road trailer
