YODs are one of the oldest One Design classes still sailing in the UK. Eight boats were built in 1898 and of this original group six are sailing today! Two more were built in 1938, another in 1945, a further three in 1947, and one in 1951. The latest addition was launched in 1998 for the centenary of the class.

The early boats were gunter rigged, but are now sailed with a Bermudan rig.

Designer: J. Helyar, at Field & Co of Southampton, 1898
