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

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.

http://www.skiff.org.au/images/pdf/NSW12ft_skiff_measurement _rules.pdf

http://www.rclass.org/info/rrules

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

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.
