Class Information

The S80 is a one-design yacht designed for racing and cruising. It is intended to provide, at a reasonable cost, high-performance racing for inshore and limited offshore events, while at the same time providing a simple and spacious accommodation to exploit the cruising potential of the boat. It is with this racing and cruising potential in mind, together with the aim to prohibit the use of expensive and sophisticated equipment, that strict Class rules have been framed.
