Design #293. Designed as a larger variation of the O boat (see ALDEN O CLASS) know as the Sun Class, this design was a keel development of the Sun (originally called the Wawabeek). Locally dubbed the Indian Class by owners at both the Pequot and Black Rock Yacht Clubs (Connecticut, USA). This class was discontinued after 4-6 years due in part to the reputation for sinking if swamped.
Main sail area: 200 sqft.
