The T-Class Racing Sloop is a fast-sailing model yacht and elegant for display. This has always been our most popular design, and there are now over 13,000 T-Class sailing! The Ships Papers are numbered for each boat. Hulls are western red cedar. Fittings are solid brass.
With almost half of the entire weight in the lead keel casting, the T-Class is completely self-righting. She has the power to sail in anything from the lightest breeze up to winds gusting twenty-five miles per hour. In waves a foot high, shell take right off, heeling over and charging through the waves!
The T-Class sails beautifully in any size water from a swimming pool to the open seas. In wide open water, sail her on a light line: shell sail out over a quarter of a mile with eight pound test monofilament fishing line on the bow! Tug on the line, and shell spin around, tack, and sail back to you! Set the rudder hard over and shell sail in loops. When you sheet in the sails, shell sail upwind within 45 degrees of the wind. Ease the sheets and shes racing downwind.
In a good breeze the T-Class will sail straight across a lake a mile wide in just under half an hour! On a small lake shell sail across faster than you can walk around to meet her. Set her off from a kayak, dingy, or rubber raft, and The Chase is On!.
