Hadron Dinghies Ltd have entered into a partnership with leading composite boatbuilder Winder Boats to produce the mouldings for the H2.
David and his team of skilled laminators have carved out an excellent reputation building championship winning Fireballs, Merlin Rockets, Mirror Dinghies and Solos, among others. The H2 will now be added to their range but Simon Hipkin will continue to fit out each H2 to customers’ individual requirements.
The move will enable us to accelerate production and rapidly clear our backlog of outstanding orders.
Two H2s were exhibited at the RYA Dinghy Show which took place on 25-26 February.
TOO HEAVY? TOO LIGHT? TOO OLD?
On Saturday at the RYA Dinghy Show three people came up to me with different questions: Question #1: I weigh 73kg – am I too light for an H2?” Answer: “I will refer you to Ian Dawson’s performance at last year’s H2 nationals: he won the lightweights trophy, the Grand Master’s trophy, the Ulysses trophy (for the oldest competitor) and was second over all (to Nick Craig). Ian weighed 75kg in his sailing gear.” Question #2: “I weigh 110kg – am I too heavy for an H2?” Answer: “I will refer you to Richard le Mare. Richard was second in the 2021 H2 Nationals (to Nick Craig) and is the current H2 Inland Champion. He is heavier than you.” Question #3: “I am 70 years old – am I too old for an H2?” Answer: “Please refer to answer #1. Ian Dawson celebrated his 70th birthday a week after the 2022 Nationals.”
The Show is taking place on 26-27 February at the Farnborough Exhibition Centre.
Class Chairman Dave Barker’s H2 will be the principal exhibit on the HH2CA stand. Dave created his own artwork on the hull of his new boat. Come and meet Dave and other H2 Class association members on stand D61. See you there!
