The Vanguard 15 is a popular one design racing dinghy designed by Bob Ames. It is a double-handed monohull sailboat with a sloop rig. Ideally the combined weight of the crew is between 270 lb and 340 lb and both members hike off the boat to keep it flat. Its an ideal boat for family racing. Its design allows it to plane while sailing upwind in 12 knots of breeze or more. LNYC V15 sailors race in the Dinghy Club series, Thursday night series and Friday Fun Sails. Travel regattas include the CYC Open at Wrightsville Beach in August and Midlands at CSC, Columbia, in November and most recently, Governors Cup at Kerr Lake in June.
