Welcome to the Australian 14 Foot Skate Sailing Dinghy Website

Commonly known as the "Skate" this sailing dinghy has an awesome reputation for wild rides and exhilarating speed.

The Skate is sailed in three states of Australia. NSW, WA & SA. Although boats still exist in Victoria they are not sailed regularly and are older boats. Good class racing takes place at a number of clubs during the summer months.

This page is to provide information about the Skate Class for both the enthusiast and the uninitiated.

Those who have sailed a Skate will testify that, they provide the most exciting and best sensation of speed of any monohull sailing boat. Even after graduating to other larger boats, people hold the Skate in high esteme. They remember it for providing the best ride they ever had on a sailing boat.
