|Gypsy Class||Northvaal Sailing Association|
The Gypsy dinghy is an easy to sail boat which is ideally suited to beginners and family sailing.
Designed and manufactured in South Africa the Gypsy dinghy has a strong fibre-glass hull, an integral centre board and an unstayed two piece mast
Sails consist of a Mainsail and a Jib each of which are hoisted and controlled by a simple system of ropes and pulleys.
Normally the Gypsy dinghy is supplied with a launching dolly which slides onto an high speed trailer, making it one of the easiest two person boats to transport.
Gypsy dinghies are available second hand at reasonable prices ranging from R3500 to R8000 dependent upon condition and equipment level.
