Rigging & Sails



Designed to thrill with her pace, give pleasure with her grace, and provide a spacious and safe environment for all of the family to enjoy, the Yare & Bure One Design (AKA Yare & Bure OD, YBOD or "White Boat", the latter due to her painted topsides) is an extremely versatile day sailer which appeals to both novices and experienced sailors alike. Ernest Woods built 69 boats, the first in 1908, and his nephew, Herbert, went on to build a another 24 boats in wood. Further boats have since been build in GRP, and the class now numbers over 137. Designed specifically for Broads sailing, the fact that the class remains as popular now as when originally designed over 100 years ago is testament to the fact that the "White Boat" is a true Broads classic!

The following is a quote from Classic Boat Magazine: "Under sail, the YBOD is lively, yet responsive - her easily-driven hull slipping sweetly through the water. Her powerful rig can make her a challenge to sail in strong, gusty conditions, yet with a couple of reefs in and an additional crew-member on board, she will still prove reassuringly stable, with her semi-balanced rudder making her a relatively light touch on the helm."
