Now that the entire Hadron H2 production process has been taken in-house, Hadron Dinghies are pleased to announce that all new hulls manufactured from November 2020 will come with an industry-leading 5 YEAR WARRANTY.
Due to various inflationary factors, Hadron Dinghies will be increasing the purchase price of the standard Hadron H2 dinghy by 3.5%, effective from 1st May 2021. All orders confirmed before that date will be honoured at the current price of £10,295. After 1st May the price will be £10,650. This is our first increase for two years but we cannot rule out a further increase should commodity prices continue to rise. Prices of certain accessories and options may also be increased by a similar amount.
One of the UK’s top dinghy sailors, Nick Craig, has ordered a new H2 for 2021. Nick has multipe national, European and world championships to his credit, in several classes, including Merlin Rocket, Solo, OK, Devoti D1, B14 . He is also 4 times winner of the Endeavour Trophy – the UK’s ‘Champion of Champions’ event.
Nick borrowed an H2 earlier this year to compete in one of the Sailjuice Winter Series events. He must have enjoyed the experience, because this Autumn he placed his order for a new H2. The boat is now under construction in our Essex works and is due to be completed in December.
The final day of the Championships was high in drama as the two main contenders battled for the top spot. In the final deciding race there was just 3 seconds separating them. See the report in Yachts and Yachting
The Hadron H2 National Championships will take place on 11-13 September, hosted by RYA 2019 Club of the Year, the Royal Torbay YC.
Although it is anticipated that numbers will be down on previous years, this event is much anticipated by H2 owners, who have had little opportunity to hone their skills so far this year. The club and facilities are second to none and we can expect a great 3 days’ sailing.

Hadron Dinghies Covid19 Update
After a successful RYA Dinghy Show in early March the pandemic situation has locked down the sailing scene.
Simon Hipkin and Keith Callaghan hope everyone is doing their best to stay safe during this time. We are continuing with work as best as possible and are open for business.
If you are thinking of a new H2 for when we get back to sailing please don’t hesitate to get in touch and place an order. Order lead time is currently 10-12 weeks but once the lid has been let off we expect a backlog to build rapidly. You can call Keith on 01473 823587.
Please stay safe and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
