X One Design racing takes place throughout the season in six locations around the Solent. At each one a full programme of racing is organised by the Clubs involved.
“Typically fifty to sixty races per season including weekdays and weekends”
Of the 196 X boats ever built, after allowing for those lost to fire, storm, neglect and one even to enemy action, there are still 145 registered as belonging to members of the five clubs.
“The quality of Club racing is the key to the success of the X Class.”
It has attracted many experienced helms and crew and the standard of sailing at the front of the fleets is undoubtedly high. Whenever you sail you can be sure of good competition. Boats are equal, turnouts are good and races are keenly contested at all levels throughout the fleet.
