HADRON DINGHIES are proud to announce that we have entered into an agreement with MTag Composites for the moulding of H2 hulls. http://www.mtagcomposites.co.uk
MTag has an excellent record of manufacturing all kinds of mouldings, including some very well known racing dinghies. MTag will manufacture the complete H2 hull – i.e. 3 mouldings, bonded and finished. Simon Hipkin at Hadron Dinghies will continue to fit out the boats and will offer layout and finishing customisations as at present. A full range of colour choices will remain available.
Simon will be collaborating with MTag over the next few weeks to produce new moulds, which will be created from the existing tooling. The moulding process will be supervised by Simon and he will ensure that all quality criteria are met. Simon will then fit out and customise the boat to your specification. This upgrade to our manufacturing capacity will enable a trebling of output. Thus we can now offer a new H2 for Spring 2023 if you order NOW.
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!
The 2021 H2 Championships took place at Herne Bay Sailing Club (North Kent coast) over the weekend of 3-5 September. It was a very successful event, with 22 boats competing – the largest H2 fleet to date.
UPDATE, 19 July 2021: All build slots until September 2022 are now booked but we are increasing resources in order to shorten the unit build time. Therefore please book your place in the queue and we will hope to bring existing orders forward. No deposit is required initially.
The Hadron H2 Class Association’s YouTube Channel proved very popular with visitors, with a thousand views of the videos.
Yachting journalist David ‘Dougal’ Henshall gave the last talk of the Show on the main stage on Sunday afternoon. His subject was ‘Seven Dinghies for Seven Decades’. The H2 was shortlisted with two other singlehanders for ‘Dinghy of the 2010s’ but lost out to a very popular product from the world’s largest dinghy manufacturer. However, when asked the question from the (virtual) floor “What is your personal favourite of all the dinghies you have mentioned”, Dougal chose the H2. This reflects his involvement with the early stages of the design development of the H2 and his weeks long trialling of the prototype before writing a Boat Test report for Yachts and Yachting in 2017.
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.
