WELCOME TO THE X ONE DESIGN CLASS
Welcome to the home of the X One Design Class Association which manages the affairs of the whole X One Design (XOD) Class. The XOD fleet is based in six places along the south coast of England, from Poole Harbour in the west to Chichester Harbour in the east with four bases in between, two on the Isle of Wight and two on the mainland. You can explore this website to find plenty of information about the fleet, together with how to join in the fun and become involved. There are links below to each of the six fleets or Divisions as they are called, and if you need more information, just get in touch.
There are full racing programmes, of typically at least 50 to 60 races per season, for up to 140 boats in six Divisions around the Solent area: at Cowes • Hamble • Itchenor • Lymington • Parkstone • Yarmouth.
Much of the racing run within the Divisions is open to XODs from other Divisions. Our racing schedule is organised to facilitate this, as far as possible, and the Golden Tiller Traveller’s Series gives the XODs that like to travel a trophy to aim for.
Our annual championships are held during Cowes Week which attract a good fleet, high quality racing in (mostly) breezy and exciting conditions.
The success of the racing at Cowes Week and in the Divisions demonstrates the strength of a Class which attracts old and young, rich and poor, fit and not so fit to compete in high quality one design racing on equal terms.
