Winter has arrived, but we're all looking forward to next seasons VX'ing!

The mid-winter nationals have been run and won, congrats to the competitors and winners in each category.  Check out some of the RQYS VX One Mid Winter Regatta videos here: Friday , Saturday , Sunday .  Whilst the new season promises some fabulous sailing, the 23-24 season was a ripper, from the Nationals, through regattas across each state and also the youth regatta.  

Several regattas are lined up for the first half of 24-25 season, with January's Australian Championship planning well underway too.  Get that winter maintenance done, it's going to be a thrilling season.

The VX One

The VX One is a modern and light one-design sports boat that has great form stability instead of a deep heavy keel.  It accelerates quickly and sails at wind speed downwind with speeds reaching up to 24 knots. The flat stern sections and chines make it easy to control.  The layout of the VX One is clean and simple, the rig infinately adjustable but set in place for each race.  The self-tacking jib and single line to launch and douse the spinnaker makes it easy to control for a crew of 2 or 3 in all conditions.  This overall simplicity and "ease of use" allows sailors to focus on sailing the boat, on the competition, on the race, and not on minor tweaks that distract and may inevitably have minimal impact. 

With a fast growing fleet in Australia, 50 plus boats sailing and 12 imported in the last year alone, there are no signs of this growth slowing down.  A strict one design but "open" class mentality makes for a short learning curve, great open dock talk and fierce on water competition.  This is definately a class to get in on! 

The VX One is a class for the future, exciting, affordable and very competitive.  A class for the sailors and it's gaining traction with sailors at levels.

What's not to love?  Time to get on board.

Looking for some action...
