For more than thirty years the Etchells class has enjoyed solid and steady growth with over fifty active fleets worldwide. Etchells sailors are enthusiastic and loyal supporters of their boat and class association. The Etchells is a big, fast, simple, stable, and sleek racing sloop that can be sailed competitively and in comfort by three or four average sailors. It can tack in 70 degrees and has a low wetted surface hull form that keeps moving in the slightest breeze. In 20+ knots it absolutely flies. The strict one-design principle of the class was established from the outset and is controlled by a strong, established and well-administered class association. Control of construction by the class association and the ISAF ensures quality and uniformity. It’s trailerable, easy to maintain and light enough to dry sail; and Etchells hold exceptional resale value.
PYC hosts Etchells Fleet 27. Most, though not all fleet members are also members of PYC. We are an active racing fleet on Casco Bay, in the great state of Maine. Racing consists of Tuesday Night Series and weekend spring, summer and fall series.
