54th Australian Cherub Championship - Videos (Mon 9 January 2017)


The Cherub class is doing well here in Australia, with over 40 boats turning out for the titles. Cherubs are designed to allow innovation and at a min hull weight of 51 kgs a fair bit lighter than its contemporaries. The class has a great fun and slightly anarchistic (read Skiff) culture. They are sailed by mostly young crews 16 – 30 yrs old, but some older guys and ladies are still engaged.

Great work from Ollie Hartas, who when he isn’t sailing his Cherub, 18 foot skiff or otherwise, is a videographer specialising in sailing vids.

New Rule Changes are Final (Tue 5 August 2014)

The results of voting on the recent remit are now complete. Boat owners voting was mainly in favour of all the proposed changes, however, the restrictions on GPS use and rudder extension length were very close.

The latest rules and measurements can be viewed here Latest Measurement Rules 2014
NB: There will be a sail measurement guide to be read in conjunction with these new rules.

If you any questions please feel free to contact the National Technical Officer, Wayne Torpy, or your state Technical Officer.
