Looking for Cherubs

Recommended Posts

The cherub class is getting together to get some of the old boats back on the water. There is several people in Auckland who are actively looking for a boat as-well as we are trying to identify the location of as many boats as possible. If you know of any boat either for sale or in storage can you please put the info you know about it in the comments below so we can get as many as possible back out sailing.

Cheers

I'm loving all this Cherub action going on at the moment and think it's a magnificent move.

I think if the northern chap can get a laser cut flat pack kit togeather for a stich n tape like build that would be awesome and they would go very well.

We had a chat at the club about what boat to go to next as a intermediate to advanced trainer and want to suss these as a option. It's also been discussed by few how about doing a multi boat build programme under the club like used to happen. There is quite a bit of interst in this so we're watching closely.

Agree KM, Cherubs are great boats with good performance, and can be done comparatively cheaply. I'd like to see this site keep up to date with whats happening.

Back in the day when I was lighter/smaller/with body parts that moved freely, the association in Australia had a mould that did the rounds of backyard builders.

Great boats, except for #2079... too heavy, too slow, blown out sails

This sort of thing is happening in Oz with the flying Ant and is very successful by the sounds of it

Yeap bloody good seeing a revival of these classes that have basically been killed off by YNZ, or at least in NZ.

When looking at the boats YNZ wants none are much more than massively over priced pieces of tupperware surrounded by a multitude on ticket clippers. So to see Ants and Cerubs and more coming back is magnificent and maybe a way to make NZ the powerhouse it once was.....off the back of these very classes.

I do very VERY much hope the northland lad and those in this around him get it to work, I really do. We've chatted a lot and I think, putting on my business hat, the plans this group have are smart, affordable and pretty much awesome. I'm just looking at photos of one in build and it so much makes me want to build one myself.
