Manly Junior

Manly Junior 

ASC has a progression of centreboard classes to suit all levels and ages. The Manly Junior (MJ) is a double handed junior dinghy that offers performance and a great platform both as an introduction to sailing as well as for development of advanced sailing and racing skills. Racing is competitive with many previous sailors going on to become world or Olympic Games champions in other classes. The skill level shown at a State or National event is high with racing being completed in up to 25 knots (46 km/h) of wind.

ASC have had a long association with the Manly Junior class, having produced multiple National and State Champions.

Typically the helmsman is aged 10~14 and the crew 7~11 years old. It is among the smallest of classes with a "full rig": mainsail, jib and spinnaker. Combined crew weight is usually in the 40-90Kg range. The MJ is a good alternative to the O'pen BIC for those who are smaller, or lighter, for their age group.

Coaching suitable to skill levels is provided at all levels, using both internal and external coaching resources.

There is some scope to store your boat at ASC (fees apply) and there is an active 2nd hand market for MJs so you should be able to purchase one that would suit your budget.
