The HAMPTON ONE-DESIGN was a product of a committee selected by HYC members to pick a sloop that could be raced in the shallow waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Vincent Serio, the designer was also the builder of the first 500 boats. The class now allows FG contruction (at least 60 built) and an aluminum spar. The use of a trapeze is also permitted.
