One Design

One-design is one of the primary forms of sailing competition. In contrast with handicap racing, where time is added or substracted from the finishing times based on design factors and mathematical formulas, One-design boats start at the same time, have very similar or identical designs and the winner is the first to cross the finish line. One-design classes vary from small dinghies like the Optimist (8ft) to boats as big as the Beneteau 36.7 (37ft).
