The Redwing

We’re delighted that a timeless classic racing dinghy is now available to order again today”
Bill Dowell, Secretary of the National Redwing Dinghy Association

The Redwing is a traditional one-design clinker-built 14 ft (4.27m) racing dinghy sailed by a crew of two. Good Wood Boat Company are proud to be an approved builder of the Redwing keeping this wonderful tradition alive. The rig is bermudan sloop without spinnaker but with one trapeze for the crew. Although the class is small there are a few fleets of Redwings dotted around the UK which are raced enthusiastically, often all year round. The Redwing is light and fast for a clinker dinghy but is very durable and long-lived.
