I would love to hear back from those that have derived such great memories and experiences while sailing the 12 ft Cadet Dinghy at Largs Bay Sailing Club and in past Stonehaven Cup Regattas.
Please read the following article on the history and progress of the 12ft Cadet Dinghy and consider if you can help our present sailors and the future 12ft Cadet Dinghy sailors. In supporting the junior sailing community at Largs Bay, the 12 ft Cadets have filled a void in which prospective sailors who turn up on a Saturday morning and want to have the experience of going for a sail can do so . The class is based around the Australian 12 Foot Cadet Dinghy, a class that has been raced Largs Bay since the late 1920s. The dinghies are a very forgiving seaworthy boat that combines beautiful classic lines and modern function. Over time, the Cadet dinghy itself has undergone a series of significant updates while maintaining the delightful character of the traditional design. Why install the side tanks, Bermudan rigs, swing rudders and aluminium centre plates ? Cadet crews were still required to bail their dinghies once swamped whilst other classes had begun installing buoyancy tanks to keep their dinghies afloat and to allow them to get back into the race. In 1996 RBYC designed larger bow and stern buoyancy tanks which were approved for the 1998 Stonehaven Cup. In 1999 the Victorians designed the bermudan rig as an option for the traditional lugsail configuration. In 2004 the side buoyancy tank boats were trialled in the invitation races at the 2004 Stonehaven Cup in Largs Bay.
In 2005 the Victorian and South Australian sailors designed larger spinnakers, swing blade rudders and light-weight aluminium centreplates were approved by all states for Stonehaven Cup competition. The addition of side buoyancy tanks has made it easier to get them racing again in the event of the inevitable capsize, and has reduced demands on the safety boat fleet.

Two ambitious Cherub sailors are starting a 12ft skiff class in the UK Within the last ten years high performance skiff sailing has taken off in the UK in a big way. The 12ft Skiff, like many Australian born skiff classes, originates some time back in the late 1800s. One of the men responsible for finally bringing the class to the UK after many years of discussion is Alan Atterbury.
This three crew format demands teamwork, builds lasting friendships and reinforces a sense of club community. At Largs Bay over the past few years we have even seen keen parents of new families go out for a sail in a cadet.
The unique arrangement of three crew positions on a Cadet dinghy ensures all skill levels are accommodated and everyone gets to go sailing. The optional upgrade from lugsail rig to bermudan rig has made the boats easier to rig and manage on the water. This demand on support and safety fleet is a significant issue as well as the duty of care we have to all of our sailing community. Nice and sturdy, very stable and yet fast and manoeuvrable, she is three-quarter decked in epoxy-sheathed ply, leaving a very roomy yet secure cockpit in the middle.
OWNERS COMMENTS HISTORY The Sea Ranger, a 12 foot clinker, gunter-rigged, general purpose dinghy, has been the Gunfleet Sailing Club s traditional one design class since the Club was formed in 1961. We have seen the 18ft Skiff fleet grow to one of the biggest domestic fleets in the world and have had Olympic success in the Australian born 49er. During the early part of the 20th Century the boats continued to develop until a significant leap around the 1950s saw the boats much more easily recovered from a capsize and as a result more practical to sail.


Atterbury, a long time Cherub sailor, has dreamed of sailing 12ft skiffs for almost 20 years since he saw a picture of one in the Guinness Book of Records of all places. Although it can be easily singlehanded by a beginner, the TAZ can accommodate a child and adult together, making it ideal for training purposes. Some of the Cadet Kids have moved on to crew in Holdfast Trainers, Herons and 303s which is positive for other classes also.
The crew dynamics and development of teamwork are vital and as such can be seen as a model for future life skills.
This argument doesn’t help us now when we have less experienced skippers in the class and a greater emphasis on safety than "those good old days". The argument has been; "why not sail a pacer or a 125 with full buoyancy as the 12 ft Cadet is an open boat" .
She has one sail that can be rigged as a standing or balanced lug sail.The boat comes complete with a pair of oars, cover, one sail, two masts plus rudder dagger board etc. She has been used as a day boat with the grand children, who are now grown up, hence my reason to sell. Choice of the simple and efficient unstayed lug rig or the more complex Gaff rig with bowsprit. No association between Berkeley Publishing Ltd and the trademark holder exists or is implied.
Now another Australian skiff is on its way to our shores, a class many believe to be the most extreme sailing boat currently on the water: the 12ft Skiff.
In 1995 he managed to make part of that dream a reality when he was offered a sail on one when out in Sydney.
Whisper was built by my son who studied at the Lime Regis International School of boat building. Since then the boat has not really taken off in any other countries and has remained solidly in the southern hemispherea‚ā¨¬¶.until now. Since then there he has regularly thought about and discussed importing a boat from Australia but it was not until the early part of this year he was actually able to do it. Bearing all of this in mind the argument has been changed to we will not have any more 12ft cadets unless change is embraced.
