The Tasar is one of those ‘cult classic’ two-person racing boats. While over 40 years old now, its handling and technical nature are as infamous as its sailing characteristics. The Tasar is unique in that it’s very light weight, and one of the few hiking (non-trapezing) boats that will plane upwind as well as down. There are active fleets in the Pacific Northwest, and around 700 boats in North America. Seattle and Vancouver are the centers of racing in the US, with fleets in the UK, Australia, and Japan. While the Tasar isn’t common to buy new anymore - mostly being available in fleet orders (4 boats at a time) - it’s still a boat we hold near and dear to our hearts. Hardware changes in the late 2000s saw Mylar Sails and new hardware options that upgraded the boat. The Tasar is a memorable hiking dinghy for high level racing - and it continues to age quite well over the decades.
