2.4 Metre
 
 

2.4 Metre

The 2.4 metre is a single-handed, not quite one-design keelboat. (It is soon becoming one-design). It is a scaled-down 12 Metre and is one of the classes sailed in the Paralympic Games. The boat is typically steered with foot pedals, although some have a tiller that is mounted on the console, and some have both. The lines are all mounted on a console and you sit on a seat that is mounted about two inches on the bottom of the boat, over the keel. Strength and agility are not major factors in achieving success in this class, sailing smarts are. The boat is sailed by able-bodied and disabled sailors alike. The boat is stored on a trailer and is dry sailed at all events. There are three North American builders and you can be ready to sail for about $10,000.
