Category Description

<p> One-design racing keelboats differ by type of usage – some are suitable only for coastal races, others can be used for multi-day offshore regattas. Depending on the purpose for which they are used, one-design yachts may have one or more cabins providing a certain set of amenities or they may have no cabins and no amenities at all. The same holds true for navigation and communication equipment.</p> <p>Category A yachts which can compete in long ocean races are also generally very ascetic and may lose to the simplest cruising models in terms of the comfort they afford.</p> <p>Some of the one-designs are intended for command regattas (for example, <em>"Dragon"</em>,<em> "SB20"</em> or <em> "Melges"</em>), others can be used for single-handed sailing (for example, "Beneteau Figaro"). As a rule, each one-design class has its own established calendar of regattas – these are regional, national and/or international competitions. Not only fleet races but also match races are held on one-design boats.</p>
