The SigneT is a 12’4” traditional racing dinghy designed in 1961 by Ian Proctor. In Ian’s own words, “the design problem set by the Sunday Times was to provide really good sailing and racing at the lowest possible cost” and nearly 50 years later the SigneT does exactly that.
The wooden hull, designed for home building in your average single garage without the need for fancy tools, is a lasting design. The oldest built to the current design is SigneT ST2 – built in 1961 and still sailing competitively within the fleet today. Now you can have SigneTs built for you, home-build or buy second-hand.
You can view a brief specification here.
The SigneT was designed for all the family. It is small enough, with jib, to be handled by children in moderate winds and its stability makes it ideal for training. Yet fully equipped, with Genoa and a 90 square foot spinnaker, it makes for some very exciting racing.
The association runs a series of Open Meetings at various venues between May and September. We also hold a full week’s National Championships in early August each year, with the nationals venues taking us variously to both coastal waters and inland lakes. We offer help and advice on all aspects of SigneT sailing including buying or building a SigneT, fitting a SigneT, measurement, tuning or any other question you can think of relating to SigneT sailing. We are also able to put new members in touch with other SigneT sailors around the UK for local support and advice.
