Crew: 1 man crew. For racing, ideal weight of sailors should be between 63 and 83kgs.
Dimensions: 3.88 meters long and ±48kg.
Sail Area: 6.5 square meters.
Class: Restricted (hull shape remains the same from year to year)
Characteristics: Streaker is an easy boat to handle with exhilarating performance
Difficulty Level: Intermediate

The Streaker is an easy boat to handle no matter how inexperienced the helm might be. It offers extremely lively racing performance in a very broad range of conditions. A benefit of the low hull weight also means that when ashore the Streaker is both light and easy to handle, even allowing it to be popped on the roof of most small family cars without any problem. The Streaker dinghy was designed by Jack Holt in 1975 and was first launched in November of that year, since then it has been shown regularly at boat shows throughout the country.

Careful consideration was given to the overall design and this means she will accept a wide range of crew weights and sizes without seriously affecting either comfort or performance.  Recently this versatility has been further enhanced by the addition of an optional 'cut-down' mainsail to the class regulations, making the Streaker even easier to handle for both novice and/or lightweight helms even in the most trying of conditions.  Although regarded amongst it's peers as a strict 'One-design', optional features such as Timber or GRP construction, dual controls led out to the side decks and choice of toe strap positions help the Streaker accommodate the most discerning of sailors in relative comfort.

In addition to an annual National Championships, where as many as 60 Streakers compete for line honors, the Association currently holds approximately twenty-four Open Meetings each year, which are split into Northern and Southern Paddle (Travellers) series depending upon their location.  These events are further enhanced by Northern Area, Southern Area and Inland Championships (in years where the National Championships are held at a costal venue), which are keenly contested by all competitors no matter what their level of sailing ability.
