The V15 is lighter, tougher, easier to transport, and more fun than any other boat in its class.
Fantastic local, regional and national racing is readily available. You may find yourself on the line next to a husband and wife team or the next Olympic hopeful.
The V15 Class Association sanctions hundreds of events all over the world. From family-oriented "Great Escape" weekends to a regional and national level racing circuit, everyone can participate. Tight one-design class rules ensure that the V15 will remain simple and competitive for many years to come.
