The 2.3 Single with its comfortable seat, joystick steering, single mainsheet control and amazing manoeuvrability has to be easiest boat in the world to sail. Add to that the wide side decks, ballasted centreboard and reef-able sail and it also has to be one of the safest.
What makes this little boat so unique is the confidence and sense of security it gives even the most unlikely new sailor as it can also be fitted with Servo Assist electric controls. Therefore, the 2.3 single allows even those with a severe physical disability to also experience the joys of freedom on the water.
