Description

Details

The SKUD 18 is a high performance lead-assisted skiff with a tube-launched asymmetrical spinnaker and a modern stayed rig. Active able-bodied and disabled sailors alike have enjoyed the two-person version since 2006. The exciting three-person development of the SKUD 18 is also now available. Selected by IFDS as the equipment for two-person Paralympic competition from 2008 until 2020, the SKUD18 platform can be sailed by two and three-person crews. In its open configuration the crew are seated on the gunwale, but if one crew uses a center line seat one can use trapeze. A wide range of additional equipment can also be added after control points to permit a sailor to compensate for any functional disability and enable the crew to maximize their collective potential. For Paralympic competition, the two crew are seated on the center line.
