Albacore

The Albacore is a two-man hiking dinghy. The class is restricted, which means that the hull shape and sail plan are not allowed change from year to year. There are around 30 clubs around the country with fleets of between 6 and 30 boats with many more places where Albacores are welcomed and sail in handicap fleets.
