The Ovington Albacores are built under licence issued by the RYA and the National Albacore Association - and are supplied into the UK and Canada. The Albacore is an ideal first boat for those who are just learning to sail and a very competitive racer for more advanced sailors. Powerful and adjustable sail controls allow sailors to depower in high winds - enabling both light and heavy crews to race head to head.

The Albacore is a boat that is both simple to get into at first and one which will challenge your tuning and tactical skills for the rest of your life. There are sailors racing Albacores from all walks of life and range in age from teenagers to masters pushing 80 years of experience.   

Fully fitted Albacores are available in the UK from CS Boats and Pinnell & Bax.
