OZ RACERS – family sailboats – Two versions and one kit of this simple to build 8footer.

There are two versions of the OzRacer and one Kit for family sailing, learning to sail or club racing. The Kit by J.O. Woodworks fits the PDRacer rules but carries just about all the OzRacer advantages of Performance, Lightness, Ease of building and that you can build the boat very cheaply and still get first class performance. The plans even show you how to make a proper sail from polytarp at home. All for $20!

Good time was had by all.

The winter is harsh – so how about some boating?

Winter has been really harsh in North America.It has even been snowing in Texas – and not just a little bit.Kenny and family (more north than Texas) are really active on the PDRacer front but like many others are getting cabin fever from being icebound inside their houses.So during one of the better days … there was boating to be done – but not boating as we know it, Jim.
