Welcome to K1 Sailing
The K1 single-handed performance keelboat heralds a new era of single-handed sailing combining speed, style and ease of sailing.
UK K1 Nationals
This unique mini yacht has a lifting keel with bulb weighing 60kg yet its all-up weight is little more than a conventional single-handed dinghy. The hull is constructed using the latest light-weight construction techniques to minimise weight and the carbon spars are ultra light and responsive.
The slender hull has little resistance when heeled so is quick and tacks through a low angle. The jib is set on a self-tacking jib pole and the cockpit is deep and comfortable when sitting on the deck edge.
The result is a boat that is an absolute joy to sail and guaranteed to provide effortless fast sailing and close tactical racing.
