Welcome to the CVRDA

The Classic and Vintage Racing Dinghy Association (CVRDA) exists to get classic and vintage racing dinghies racing together as often as possible, to share and disseminate information about classic and vintage dinghies and to raise the public awareness of these boats and the nautical heritage they represent.
We welcome everyone with an interest in classic and vintage dinghies so please join us on our forum, our FaceBook group or, better still, on the water at an event.
