UTSC welcomes sailors of all types of dinghy and the Handicap Fleet is the home for the "orphans" in the club, sailors who have boats that are not part of the sailing classes that have regular class racing starts (Merlins, Wayfarers OKs and A Raters).
The make up of the fleet are boats that members have brought with them when they joined the club, or have found a boat that suits them better than the main classes that are sailed at the club. Several are owned by sailors who also have a boat in one of the main racing classes.
The range of boats is eclectic and includes a couple of Lasers and National 12s, together with a few Solos and an increasing number of RS Aeros. If the number of boats in any of these classes increases to a minimum of six boats, with a regular turnout of three boats in Series races, they could be eligible for their own class start.
Handicap races are held on Sunday mornings and afternoons, while the Wednesday evening series in the summer is also a handicap race (with all boats eligible). Cup races also have a Handicap class start.
