Bermuda Fitted Dinghy - Design 2598

Port Royal II

This Bermuda Fitted Dinghy was designed and launched in 1992. These incredible dinghies are approximately 14' overall and sport an enormous amount of sail area: a main sail of 322 square feet, a jib of 143 square feet and a spinnaker of 583 square feet. This particular boat was built for the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club. The first fitted dinghy race in Bermuda was held in 1880. The racing is restricted to amateur crews.
