A sailing dinghy to suit everyone.

The “Tamar Class”, is the small yacht  designed and initially built within the immediate Tamar Valley.

The design was by a local yachtie,  Grahame Titmus, and later built by the students of  Port Dalrymple School 


The reason the small yacht was designed was to provide a vessel that could be handled by young “yachties”. (Club Juniors)
