The Cherub class is doing well here in Australia, with over 40 boats turning out for the titles. Cherubs are designed to allow innovation and at a min hull weight of 51 kgs a fair bit lighter than its contemporaries. The class has a great fun and slightly anarchistic (read Skiff) culture. They are sailed by mostly young crews 16 – 30 yrs old, but some older guys and ladies still engaged. They are worth checking out.
Great work form Ollie Hartas, who when he isn’t sailing his Cherub, 18 foot skiff or otherwise, is a videographer specialising in sailing vids.
