FORCE 5 (Fleet #36)
The Force 5 is a powerful single-handed racing dingy. Although one person races the boat, the cockpit is large enough to accommodate two people and provide ample day sailing enjoyment. This 14’ craft has a 91 square-foot mainsail, rolled deck and an adjustable rig. It is easily car topped.

Force 5 Fleet #36 at Hunterdon Sailing Club Hosted the Force 5 North American Championship in 2015!
On July 9-11, 2015, Hunterdon Sailing Club hosted the Force 5 North American Championship. This event was well attended by 26 of the best Force 5 sailors from across the country, including John Barrere, the Force 5 Class Association President, who traveled from Fresno, CA. He packed his sails and boards on the plane, and borrowed a boat from an HSC member. Other participants drove from the Carolinas, Texas, Connecticut, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana. We were well represented locally with 10 sailors from Hunterdon Sailing Club in the regatta.
