South African Dabchick scow

This is the little high performance 12 foot Dabchick that most South African kids cut their sailing teeth on. I learned to sail on these and I helped my dad build a few for our club in the late 60's. They are super exciting to sail and as they have very little freeboard, the sensation of speed is even greater. At 16, kids must exit the class.

It's a boat that all the parents want to sail once the breeze hits 18 kts. Check out this video.
