The Manly Junior Class was introduced to encourage children into sailing. Designed by Ralph Tobias who wanted to give young sailors a boat with the potential to plane and buoyancy for a crew of two, the first boat was launched in 1959.
Today, the Manly Junior is one of the most popular classes for young sailors and since its inception has been used to teach over 30,000 children to learn how to sail.
Every Sunday morning, our Manly Junior Division races on the waters of North Harbour with their own dedicated Race Management and support team. For further information on this introductory class please contact our Sailing Manager, Jackie Damiani
