Illusion class

 

The Illusion is a one-design keelboat, based on a scaled version of Lionheart, the British 12 Metre Class yacht and designed by Jo Richards and Neil Graham in 1981. These peformance single-handed boats offer superb racing in nearly any conditions, by sailors of all weights and ages - with tested racing performance up to Force 6! Boats are equipped with a standard main, roller furling genoa and spinnaker.

 

There are approximately 45 boats on the quay at Bembridge Sailing Club which manages a winter race programme from October through to end April. Numbers vary according to conditions but 10 - 25 boats on the start line are the norm.

 

The class actively welcomes new members and has two loan boats available for sailors to try - to find out more and try out loan boats click here
