WELCOME TO THE XOD WEBSITE
This is the website of the Class Association which manages the affairs of the whole Class. The site provides plenty of information with links to each of the Divisions. If more information is required then contact us here..
There are full racing programmes, of typically 50 to 60 races per season, for up to 140 boats in six locations (or divisions) around the Solent area: Cowes • Hamble • Itchenor • Lymington • Parkstone • Yarmouth.
Our annual championships are held during Cowes Week and in recent years have attracted more than 80 X boats (88 in 2010). In 2011, our centenary year, we managed a remarkable 146 entries and enjoyed some high quality racing in (mostly) breezy and exciting conditions. The enormous success of the week is the clearest possible demonstration of 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.
