Sydney 38 OD
The Sydney 38 One Design delivers one-design sailing at its best. Whether competing for the thrill of grand-prix style racing or for the enjoyment of sailing amongst friends in club organised events, Sydney 38OD appeals to both the serious racers and the devotees of twilight and weekend regattas alike.
Although best known for offering one-design racing around the buoys, this yacht has also proven itself in some of the most challenging offshore races. Attracting both world-class and Corinthian sailors into its fleets, the outstanding success of the Sydney 38OD can be attributed to the diversity of sailing activities suited to this yacht.
Designed to excel in the most demanding situations, its combination of power, simplicity and exceptional performance, enables the Sydney 38OD to effortlessly produce a great deal of excitement when sailing in protected harbours and on open waters. The well-balanced hull, keel and rudder configuration provides the helmsman with a light and responsive feel, making this yacht a pleasure to sail in all conditions.
With its large open cockpit, the Sydney 38OD affords ease of movement when racing and is equally suited to entertaining. Below deck, this yacht presents a spacious, functional layout, which is easy to maintain. A large navigation area, pigeon hole storage system and a forepeak devoted to sail stowage, appeals to the race crew, while the bright, airy saloon and comfortable accommodation is suitably fitted out for the active family enjoying a weekend away.
Designed to race under its strict one-design class rules the Sydney 38OD delivers fast, exhilarating racing in a close competitive environment. A wide variety of social and racing activities are available to owners and their crew through a strong, established and well-administered Class Association.
