Hello Roy

News from the class founder Don Mcintire:

The new One Design Mini ocean racing yacht. 

Conceived for amateur plywood epoxy construction, the 5.80 Class was launched just a few weeks ago. Already we have around 50 sailors in over 16 countries starting to build. We are expecting many more in the months and years ahead. The interest in this new class and proposed events ( Including solo Transat and Mini Globe Races) is highly appreciated by sailors and well received by sailing media. 

The route around the World has logical stop overs.

As the official kit supplier for this design in South Africa ( exports are also allowed) we can offer those working from plans  French made Joubert okoume marine plywood as well.

Please contact me for information and pricing.
