The Streaker is a single handed hiking sailing dinghy designed in 1975 by Jack Holt. It is a light (minimum weight only 48 kg) one-person boat with a uni-rig stayed sail plan. It is sailed mainly in Britain and the Philippines, and over 1800 have been built. At first all boats were built of plywood, but since 1998 fibreglass, and fibreglass variants have been used, and now over half of new boats are of fibreglass or composite (fibreglass and wood) construction.
The hull design is a double chine hull, with very little freeboard and incorporates an unconventional raking dagger board.
The class fleet has been at WLYC for the last 5 years and now has its own class since 2013. It has grown significantly with competitors of all ages and abilities and has regular turnouts of over 10 boats.
