BERMUDA DINGHY EARRINGS
The Bermuda Fitted Dinghy is one of the world’s most amazing sailboats and regarded by some as an ingenious art form. By class rules, the hull is exactly 14 feet 1 inch and it’s sailed with a crew of six or seven men. From the late 1700s, ordinary Bermuda fishing dinghies and workboats were fitted with sails, keel, and ballast. The first official race was in 1853; shortly thereafter boats were constructed specifically for racing, these became the truly fitted boats, workboats were then regarded as unfitted.
