...The Supernova Dinghy Supernova News

The Supernova is a "one design" single handed sailing dinghy of 4.3 metres length with an 8 square metre fully battened mylar sail and stayed mast. It was originally designed and built by Mark Giles. It is now built by Hartley Boats in Derby.

The Supernova has recently gone through a new incarnation with the introduction of the MK II Supernova and subsequently the move to modern epoxy construction. The hull is the same shape as all Supernovas but the main difference with the MK II is that the deck now has an open self-draining transom.

Sail numbers for the MK II start at 1000 and sail numbers for the new epoxy built boats starts at 1033.

Simply the best!

  If the Supernova is new to you the general introduction will be helpful.

  • Exciting Single-hander
  • PN 1071
  • Fully battened Mylar sail
  • Lively class association

Training day on 26th!
17 sailors took part in another well received CA arranged training day on Friday. On Saturday for the open it looked like the wind would never appear for the 21 competitors but eventually after an early lunch 3 races were sailed back-to-back as the wind came and went. It was Tim Hand from Sutton-in-Ashfield who took the meeting on countback from Richard Pakes after a fine demonstration of match racing in the 3rd race. Alan Bishop from Girton SC was 3rd.
