Welcome to the International home of 505 Sailing.
THE BEST TWO PERSON SAILING CHOICE ON THE PLANET
Experience the Speed
The first thing you will notice about a 505 is sheer acceleration compared to other dinghies. It’s simply exhilarating and will make you never want to sail a slower boat again.
Unlike skiffs and foiling boats, the 505 is incredibly stable and easy to control in strong wind and high waves. Almost every adjustment can be made on the water. Most adjustments can be made while under way, which makes racing incredibly dynamic.
Performance in All Conditions
The boat is unique in that it has outstanding performance in all conditions. In light air, it is quick and responsive, and in the breeze, it just goes faster.
THERE IS A REASON WHY THE 505 IS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL TWO PERSON SAILING CHOICE ON THE PLANET.
The International 505 has been raced around the world for over 50 years and still has well over 100 boats at World and European Championships. With the exhilaration and challenge of modern skiffs & foiling boats available, why is the 505 Class still so successful and growing? Even Pro sailors race 505s when they have the opportunity.
Its because they are so good for racing. They are relatively easy to master so you won’t be lapped by the good guys while at the same time highly competitive and challenging for the pros, Olympic sailors past and present. Add to that the camaraderie, the power controls that allow a wide range of crew weights to compete, championship destinations all around the world, and the fact that they are such a sweet fast boat to sail in all conditions with something for everyone, and you have your answer.
