With our Big Birthday Nationals being held at Weymouth, arguably the best place to sail a Cherub in the UK, we want YOU to join us on the water.

We want to reignite your Cherub sailing so if you have a Cherub in your garage or sitting in the dinghy park needing some loving get in touch and let's get you sailing again. Email us at so we can complete the map of where you all are and how we can get you back on the water.

We also want to hear from those of you who have seen the videos or photos; perhaps one has blasted past you and you've caught the bug and want to get involved. Not only do we have a boat dating facility (Helms and Crew looking for each other), we have also got some boats ready for their next owners.

If your boat is looking for a new home let us know and we'll do our best to find the next adrenaline junkies to take the challenge on.

We have a healthy fleet of active cherubs but we always want more! From our Single wire 97 Rules design boats through our current rule fleet with twin wires and huge spinnakers and now 2 fully foiling boats there really is something for everyone.

Check us out on:

Watch us here:

To paraphrase AC/DC: 'For those about to get wet, we Cherub salute you'.
