The UK Dart 15 Association

Britain's most popular single handed catamaran

The Dart 15 is a fifteen foot catamaran designed to be sailed by one or two crew with mainsail or mainsail and jib. It consistently has the largest entry of any single handed catamaran class in British National events. The boat can be trailered or transported on a car roof and can be easily rebuilt, ready to sail with no tools in under an hour. Take a look at our welcome page or contact your local Dart 15 sailing club to find out more.

The Sprint 15 reverted back to being called the Dart 15 on January 1st 2023. New boats and sails are already labelled with the new insignia. Owners of boats and sails with Sprint 15 logos do not need to change anything.

Nationals at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy

Race Report
(Posted on: 11th June 2024 at 22:50 pm)
A stellar weekend of champagne sailing at the home of British Olympic sailing – the 2024 Dart 15 Nationals sponsored by Noble Marine insurance really were a weekend to remember! Forty five competitors competed in nine races over three days, in winds ranging from 12 to 25 knots from remarkably consistent westerly direction.  The event attracted its usual wide range of competitors geographically from Scotland to the Isle of Wight and various places in between and the age range was from 12 years old to mid-seventies.  Of particular note were the 13 entries from Marconi Sailing Club on the Essex East Coast and a number of competitors competing in their first ever Nationals, including several who were very new to the class.

TT at Shanklin Sailing Club

Race Report
(Posted on: 21st May 2024 at 18:36 pm)
A game of two halves 29 boats entered the second of the Dart 15 Summer Series events with six sailors coming from across the Solent. There were very light and shifty winds for the first race which started just after noon on Saturday the 18th.  A right handed rectangle course was set by race officers Keith Newnham and Alan Howie-Wood which became a running start as the fickle breeze shifted round.  Those sailors who chose to start on the left hand, shore side of the line were rewarded with their own zephyr whereas those by the outer mark were left stranded in no wind.

TT at Grafham Water Sailing Club

Race Report
(Posted on: 5th March 2024 at 19:15 pm)
The day saw near perfect non-sailing conditions with a frosty start and next to no breeze at all for the 2024 Chris Black Icicle.  However a bunch of enthusiastic & optimistic travellers arrived in good time to prepare themselves for a day afloat with a somewhat diminished local Grafham Water Dart 15 fleet, making on the day attendance 11 boats from 16 entries.  Nigel & Fiona Denchfield along with Grafham Laser sailor Pete Windsor were our race officers for the day ably assisted by the efficient mark laying team supplied by GWSC.  A trapezoidal course was set that also enabled club racing to have a windward/leeward course where all boats converged on mark 4, making for interesting mark rounding.

TT at Datchet Sailing Club

Race Report
(Posted on: 20th February 2024 at 21:56 pm)
The Dart 15 Winter Series continued with its fourth Winter TT at Datchet Water Sailing Club.   The February TT does not have a great track record – with several years lost to either Covid or storm force winds and last year’s event only just managed to take place in a mere 3 to 4 knots and freezing temperatures.  So the fourteen competitors were delighted to arrive at Datchet to a decent breeze and mild temperatures.
