RoyalBurnhamOD 001Continuing our ambition to get together one-design classes from around the country, the Royal Burnham One Designs will join us next year.

Not well set up for travelling, CSCCW will be assisting with bringing a number of boats to Cowes.

Designed by Norman Dallimore in 1932, the RBOD is similar in hull profile to the Alfred Westmacott designed X One Design (as a replacement for the West Solent Restricted Design) and are similarly three-quarter decked with a deep cockpit.

Only 24 boats were ever built, all but one before WWII, and are one of the strongest classes on the Crouch. The boats remain pretty much as original with little concession to modernisation.
