Dart 18

Parkstone Yacht Club is home to a large fleet of Dart 18 catamarans. The fleet contains sailors of all ages and abilities from novices to seasoned veterans. The stable platform of the catamaran is ideal for cruising around Poole harbour with the family or for racing competitively. We are a very competitive fleet on the water but very sociable off the water!

The Dart class boat.

If you are thinking about sailing a Dart 18 but don’t know if it is for you then come and try the class boat and find out how much fun it is! Available for hire, to all members, for just £20 a day and free for youth sailors. Take it for a cruise or join in with one of the club races, the choice is yours.
For more information or to book a day contact the class captain (details below).


Interested in crewing on a Dart? Use the crew register to match yourself to available helms. We welcome everyone from novices to experienced sailors.


As one of the fastest dinghy classes to sail from the club the Dart 18 offers exhilarating, competitive one design racing.
The most popular series to race is the Wednesday evening summer series which typically runs weekly from April to September. Races begin at 6:15pm.
Saturday afternoons in the summer (April - September) and Sunday mornings in the winter (October-December) are also a popular choice with racing starting at 2:00pm on Saturdays and 10:00am on Sundays.
The club notice of race can be found on the Sailing Programme page.
