Great first race, terrific to see the VX One up close in action.
Bugger me they’re quick downhill…….

Everyone who has been out in a VX One has loved it.
Sailing a VX One is so much fun!
Come and see what we are so excited about.

“That boat is a weapon, one of the best rides I’ve had downwind in 25 knots” Steve McConaghy
The class is set for great growth this season with 3 boats due into Australia in January and the National Championships to be held at Lake Macquarie Yacht Club at the end of January.
Call Yorky to join in the fun in this exciting new class.

Do you love sailing a one design class but are tired of grunting around the course in an old leadmine, or do you still want the thrill of speed you get from a skiff or dinghy but would prefer to not hang off a trapeze any longer?
The VX One is the modern fast one design class made for you.
I have sailed dinghies, yachts, America’s Cup and coached at Olympic level. I was closely involved with the growth of the Laser Class in its formative years in Australia, holding the position of NSW Association Chairman from 1977 for six years.
I see the VX One as THE new concept in one design sailing just as the Laser was decades ago. The VX One is fast and fun to sail. It is a class destined to grow.
