What is a Farr 3.7?
The Farr 3.7 Sailing dinghy is a one-man sailing skiff with trapeze, 3.7m long, hull weight 50kg. The Farr 3.7 was designed by Bruce Farr aged 16 in 1970 as a single handed trapeze version of his successful 12 and 18-footers. It quickly became an established one design class and has become a popular alternative to lasers, especially with the recent trend back towards high-performance trapeze boats. Since the introduction of carbon fibre spars the performance and ease of sailing has further enhanced class growth.
