The 303 Wide is ideal for those sailors who wish to take their sailing a stage further. This boat has a taller rig with the addition of a jib so there are two extra control lines to handle, but the heavier centreboard, same steering and similar hull design parameters to the smaller 2.3 ensures these boats are also extremely safe and easy to sail.
The 303 Wide boat will balance perfectly when sailed single-handed, yet also balance when sailed by two full sized adults. The end result is an affordable, very versatile, exciting, yet very relaxing and comfortable boat to sail.
