Successful Virtual Dinghy Show for the Hadron H2

The Hadron H2 Class Association’s YouTube Channel proved very popular with visitors, with a thousand views of the videos.

Dougal Henshall talks about the Hadron H2 at the RYA Dinghy Show
Dougal explains why the H2 is his personal favourite dinghy

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.

Thank you for that accolade, Dougal!

Hadron Dinghies Price Increase Announcement

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.

Nick Craig orders a Hadron H2

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.
