Class History

Whenever a one-design class lasts more than 65 years and continues to grow, there has to be a good reason. With the 210 class it's simple. Ray Hunt's pace-setting design is as cutting-edge today as it was when it came off the drawing board. With its 5:1 length to beam ratio, low displacement-to-length ratio, hard chines and streamlined fin and bulb keel, the 210 is as state-of-the-art as any of today's racing machines.

There is usually a down side to boats that are performance racers—discomfort. Not so in a 210 which has a large cockpit with comfortable bench seats. When it blows, hiking is 'feet in', providing high-level performance without sacrificing comfort. The 210 is sleek, fast, and competitive and continues to be a challenging racer as well as a satisfying day sailor. 210 Sailplan

Winchless Genoa System

To control the large overlapping genoa, the genoa sheet is led belowdeck to a Small Boat traveler car mounted to the inside of the boat. The traveler car features a plate with a 57 mm Carbo Ratchamatic® Cheek block w/cam. Crew use the traveler car to sheet the genoa to 90% of full trim. Then use a 6:1 block and tackle system to pull the belowdeck traveler car forward for precise adjustments—all without ever leaving the rail.

Mainsheet System

The 210 mainsheet system uses 57mm Carbo singles on the boom and traveler and cleats to a 57mm Carbo Ratchet mounted on a Barney post. A 57 mm Carbo Ratchamatic, mounted immediately above the Rachet, provides the skipper with additional holding power of 10:1. When sheet loads decrease, the Ratchamatic® spins freely for fasteasing action. The mainsheet tail runs into the boom to a 5:1 fine-tune purchase system. Two Micro blocks create a 15:1 purchase for finger tip upwind control. The fine tune exits the bottom of the boom through an in-line thru-deck bullet block and cleats on a pivoting exit or "headknocker" block.
