Built To Win


I have used an Ovington 29er for the past two seasons, given they are built perfectly and come in on weight, I wanted my 49er to be an Ovington.

The 49er one-design skiff has transformed dinghy racing offering performance, excitement and spectacle together with the unmatched ferocity of competition only generated in Olympic fleets.

The hull designed by Julian Bethwaite is lightweight and offers minimal resistance with no noticeable speed hump unlike other boats at the time. The most noticeable feature of the 49er is the solid wings which make the boat easier to sail and generate massive righting moment. The 49er adopted a new sail plan and full carbon mast in 2008 which has enabled the boat to stay in line with modern developments in rig design.
