International 12 Foot Dinghy plans drawings online

International 12 foot dinghy reader Erwin van Doeselaar has found a set of plans for the International 12 clinker built racing dinghy online.

They can be found at the Fries Scheepvaart Museum website and can be seen here.

I gather these are considered out of date and that a racing boat could not be built from them, though I’m not clear whether this is because they would not conform to class rules or whether a boat built from them might be too slow to win. However, I must say I find these little boats designed to be fast and fun very appealing – check out that transverse section.

But I’d hate to tip one over!

Two links to check out are 100 years of 12′ dinghy sailing and The International 12 Foot Dinghy Association.

Thanks Erwin!
