Skate

This class is a traditional Australian sailing dinghy. These craft are sailed at Toronto. The class is sailed by both male and female with the crews age from 16 to 60 plus. Last season we only had three boats actively sailing.

The photo below is the traditional plank configuration showing the crew right off the end of the ten. Emma Sills said "you think you could lean a bit Mick"

Mick needs to lean a bit harder

We are expecting 3 may be 4 Skate dinghies actively sailing this season. The class delegate is Ken Davies. 

The photo below is of the two on trapeze and winged configuration of the Skate dinghy.
