BRIGHTLINGSEA ONE DESIGN

The class was designed by Robbie Stone in Brightlingsea in 1927. and is the oldest racing class on the River Colne, having started fleet racing in the very early 1930ís. They race regularly on Thursday evenings, Saturday evenings and Sunday Mornings. They can be seen taking part in the local regattas at Wivenhoe, Rowhedge and West Mersea .

The boats vary in age from the late 1920ís to the latest boat built in the late 1980ís. The boats are a challenge to race and require much practice to win. However they can also be a wonderful dayboat to potter and cruise the Estuary. Racing a BOD is a very rewarding experience and will sharpen your skills for other fleets.
