Definition


Jan 18, 2024 - An X Boat can be defined as a class of small sailing dinghies that are popular for training and racing purposes. First designed in 1932, they remain very popular in certain boating clubs and racing circles. X Boats feature a centerboard drop keel, raked mast and aft tiller. Originally constructed of wood, they are now built of fiberglass by various manufacturers.

Context


X Boats are easily identifiable in lakes and protected waters by a gathering of small triangular sails during special racing events. They are also found in various marinas, harbors and other locations that are safe for novice sailors in training.
