The Darings Fleet 

About the Daring Class  The Daring was designed by Olympian sailor, Arthur Robb, based on his successful  5.5 metre yacht "Vision", silver medal winner at the 1956 Games.  At 33’ (10.05m) long with a beam of 6’ 4” (1.93m), the Daring is the longest and  narrowest one-design keelboat in Cowes. With a displacement of over two tonnes it is  also the heaviest.  This makes the Daring less sensitive to crew weight, and with no restrictions on crew  numbers for club racing, Darings typically sail with one helm and two or three crew.  The Darings special one-design rule set allows the class to continuously improve the  sail and rigging plan by adopting the latest designs and high-technology materials to  give the very best value for money one-design racing. The popularity of the class has  grown steadily and there are now more than 30 boats in Cowes.  The first Daring was launched in 1960 and over the years a total of 32 have been built  by Lallow’s. New commissions are always welcome and if you would like more  information on this, please get in touch.  We look after the whole of the Daring fleet both summer and winter. This includes a  hull scrubbing programme which allows boats which are kept afloat to be cleaned  once every two weeks throughout the racing season.  About the Daring D2   The D2 incorporates a newly designed deck by Theo Rye which incorporates a larger  cockpit for improved crew comfort and is cambered rather than the present flat deck  making it more efficient and even better looking.  To compliment the new deck Theo also designed new interior mouldings to  incorporate forward and aft bulkheads giving positive buoyancy in the event of  flooding, dry onboard storage and a centre console and raised sole area for improved  crew efficiency and handling systems.  An essential principle of the new design was that none of these improvements would  affect boat performance. Hull shape, weight, centre of gravity, sail plan, and standing  rigging are all identical for new and old boats which means they can compete on  equal terms. The Class owns an excellent original hull mould which is used for any new boats built,  and with no rig changes, the Class has ensured that its existing yachts will continue to be competitive with any new or upgraded yacht incorporating the new Theo Rye deck.  The result has been to maintain a highly competitive fleet for boats of all ages.  For new boats or the possibility of chartering a boat for all or part of the season  contact us for more information.  For more information about the class, please see www.daring.org.uk
