single-handed sailing dinghy / regatta
4.57 m (14'11")
The VX Evo is a fresh concept in big dinghies. Designed by the VX design team specifically for larger sailors (or teams of 2 smaller sailors) wanting a simple, yet technical race-boat, optimized for performance, handling, and ergonomics whether upwind, or downwind under a balanced Asymmetric sail plan. No other performance dinghy will provide the feel , control and sailing experience of the Evo.
Utilizing laminates of Carbon, E glass and PVC cores together with advanced epoxy resins the Evo is a tough yet light platform and should provide many years of racing performance.
Kick up foils were chosen for ease of launching in any location, and safety should a grounding occur. The Centerboard rake is adjustable helping balance the helm when alternate mast rake settings are selected.
The rig is all carbon and tuned to three mainsail plans, then controlled when off the wind with a calibrated shroud only system to provide Gennaker support without compromising the easiest of high-speed Jibes.
The Evo will offer not just strict One-design racing but also a platform for any “crew’d big boat sailor” wishing to master apparent wind sailing with independence from his regular team. Sail any time you want from ramp or beach.
