The 2008 One Design Survey
The Laser Radial class had its first Olympic regatta this year and has also risen to the top of this year’s Sailing Anarchy One-Design Survey.
Before I write any more let me review the un-scientific method for determining this list of the top twenty five one-design classes in North America. What I have done is taken the number of boats competing in each class North American or National Championships for each year. The location of the championship is also included. I think this is a good measure of relative class size and activity. To rank the classes I use the average number of boats over the last three years.
