13 Nov 49er / 49erFX
Posted at 01:51h in
The 49er and 49er FX is a two-handed skiff-type Olympic high-performance sailing dinghy measuring in at 4.99 meters. The two crew work on different roles with the helm making many tactical decisions, with the driver steering, and the crew doing most of the sail control. Both of the crew are equipped with their own trapeze. In the Olympics, the 49er is sailed by teams of men while the FX is a smaller rig sailed by teams of women. Both rigs use the same hull. While the Olympics are gender separated in the skiff class, Oakcliff has teams sail with every combination.
Oakcliff has 18 hulls, with 8 49er and 8 FX rigs. These boats are available for charter.
