Boat Reviews

- Posted By Max on 19 September 2009
The cherub is a two person sailing skiff with twin wires and an asymetric spinnaker, the boat was originaly designed by Ian Murry from New Zeland, the boat is a development class, or box rule.

This means that you can change hull design, sail cut and fitting placement. The Cherub is a high performance racing dingy that offers some crazy kite runs and a very freindly fleet. The Cherub is sailed mostly in Australia and Britain, however the Cherubs in Aus have only one trapeze and a much smaller sail area.

The Aussie skiffs are following Ian's original design. They still offer some crazy rides, and even some crazy spills, make that LOT'S of crazy spills, they are a great allround boat that keeps on impressing, and I should know, because i've sailed them my whole life.
