The Wayfarer dinghy was designed by Ian Proctor in 1957 and in the subsequent 60+ years has acquired an unrivalled reputation as a tough and seaworthy cruising dinghy, yet at the same time being responsive and rewarding to race. he UK Wayfarer Association was founded a year later, in 1958.

There is probably no other centreboard boat in the world which combines these qualities as happily; it is this great versatility that makes her so outstanding as a racing and cruising boat. With a Wayfarer you can do it all

  • Learn to sail
  • Day-sail with the children
  • Cruise the river
  • Race with spinnakers, at UTSC or at open, national and international events with one of the most competitive fleets around
