Vanguard 15

The V15 is a double-handed, one-design dinghy designed by Bob Ames, one of our own fleet members here in Annapolis. V15s are lighter, faster, cheaper and easier to transport than many other comparable dinghies. Despite its light weight and good performance characteristics, V15 construction has proven to be extremely tough and durable, making for an investment that should provide years of fun and excitement on the water.

Racing in V15s is always a closely fought affair. The one-design nature of the boats ensures that everyone has the same equipment and goes pretty much the same speed. The difference between winning and losing is sailing skill and not the size of one’s checkbook or an intricate knowledge of boat tuning. V15 sailors range from top-level All-American types, to novice sailors who enjoy the relative simplicity of V15s, to families who find the V15 an ideal platform to teach kids the skills of sailing.

Post on our Google Group or Facebook Page or contact the Fleet Captain if you’re interested in testing out or crewing on a V15. There are always boats sailing at TESODs and SSA Series events!.
