Project Description

Here at Fox’s our technical specialists have been busy repairing and refitting a number of sailing dinghies in recent weeks, including a Laser, RS200 and National 12, that have either sustained damage in recent sailing events or whose owners are looking to improve their sailing performance.Layout 1

With some seriously competitive dinghy sailors in the team at Fox’s, including the current National 12 national champion, we have plenty of expertise in the yard to share with our customers. With more dinghies being booked in weekly, this new area of work is growing and providing some interesting challenges to our team.

Whether you require a hull polish, foil repairs, new rigging, some ‘go faster’ tweaks or a complete pre-regatta package, the team at Fox’s Dinghy will be pleased to help.

“Thank you very much along with Tom, Olli and Hobie for doing an excellent job repairing and tuning the rigging on Max and Oscar’s boat. The process felt as though it was in safe hands from discussing the project, to updates on pricing, progress of repairs and delivering the finished boat on time. I would have no hesitation recommending Fox’s to other boat owners”.  Pete King, Owner RS200
