The Formula 18 fleet is one of the fastest growing in the world. Electrifyingly quick, these double-handed, twin-trapeze and technically-exciting speed machines are designed to a box rule that allows a variety of builders to manufacture similar boats with similar performance. Fair racing is insured for male, female, and mixed crews by using corrector weights and two sizes of jibs and spinnakers.
