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.
