All of those who complete the survey will receive free class membership for 2022.

The Tasar GBR Class Association is running an on-line survey to re-connect with the many Tasar helms and crews throughout Great Britain.

The Tasar was introduced to the UK in 1975 and it is estimated there are some 500 boats in dinghy parks and garages up and down the country. This survey seeks to re-connect with the sailors of those boats to understand their plans, to canvas their opinions on how the committee should run the class going forwards and to gain feedback on what events the sailors would like to see in the programme.

The Tasar was a designed by Frank Bethwaite and was widely considered to be well ahead of its time. With its lightweight, fine lined hull and sophisticated rig it is easily driven to high-performance without the need for trapeze or spinnaker.

The design concept allows teams of all shapes and sizes to compete with the class being particularly popular with couples, parent and child combinations and friends alike. Typical crew weights range from 130 – 150kgs ... and some a little higher.

The boats are well made, and hulls remain competitive for many years; the recent GBR National Championships was won by a 22-year-old boat.

The survey is just 13 questions and should only take a few minutes to complete.

All responses will remain confidential and secure. Thank you in advance for your valuable insights. Your input will be used to ensure that we continue to meet your needs. We appreciate your trust and look forward to serving you in the future.

Please forward this link on to any other Tasar GBR sailors.
