Enterprise

The Enterprise dinghy is a lively tactical double handed hiking dinghy designed for close racing, that has been a WLYC class fleet since the early 60s and is one of the main classes sailed in the 24 Hour Race . It is 13’ 3” (4.04m) long, has a centreboard and two sails, these sails are manufactured from instantly recognisable blue sail cloth. It is an International class with fleets in UK, Ireland, India, Sri Lanka, USA and South Africa. To date there have been in excess of 23,350 boats built since 1956 when the first Enterprise was built. The dinghy is available in many forms of construction from wood, FRP (Foam Reinforced Plastic) and more recently epoxy, examples of each type of construction are regularly sailed at the club.

The current National Champions, Mark Lunn and Steve Blackburn are from WLYC and the National Team Prize at the National Championships is regularly being won by competitors from WLYC. The class has extremely close and competitive racing both on the lake and on the sea at Ainsdale.
