Close racing in the Daring fleet

Close racing in the Daring fleet

The Daring is a lovely looking dayboat, which offers competitive sailing regardless of crew weight. The sail replacement programme specifies that owners may only purchase new sails at given times (typically every two years). At these times the class places a bulk order on one sailmaker for sails for the whole fleet, all cut to the same design from the same cloth. Typically each boat will sail with one helm and two crew although there is no restriction on crew numbers for club racing. Since the hull design makes performance almost completely independent of crew weight, this allows a fourth crew member to join in without impacting performance or for a helm and one crew to sail competitively in light winds.
