2020 X Boat Champions: Senior Fleet - Charlie Allen and Will Utz (Left), Junior Fleet - Kamron Kaiser and Peter Wilkinson (Right)

X - Boat

The X or "Cub" boat is governed by the ILYA. It is a hard-chined, pointed bow, center-board boat that was designed primarily as a safe and uncomplicated trainer for beginning sailors and racers. Over the years, this same basic design has provided thousands of sailors with their start in the sport and it continues to be the predominant club racer in the Midwest exclusively for boys and girls up to 16 years of age.
