Herons are a sailing dinghy of 3.5m (11'3'') for a crew of two designed by Jack Holt, designer of the Mirror, GP14, YW Diamond and others. Easily sailed by parent / child, grandparents, youths or couples, Herons are highly regarded as an ideal first boat for taking up dinghy sailing. Herons are stable and easy to sail but also reward skillful handling by those seeking a competitive sport in a one-design class. For a view of Heron sailing, please have a look at our extensive Photo Galleries by selecting Photo's from the main menu above.
The jib is small enough for a 5 or 6 year old to manage, and the majority of boats are sailed by Parent / Child combinations. As the kids grow, they take their rightful position at the back of the boat!
