What are Keelboats?

Keelboats are open sailing boats with a keel under their hull. Keelboats offer more space and stability than dinghies and catamarans and allow activities like trips or racing for people who like to keep (relatively) dry. Keelboats allow you to sail with a number of other people. This, and exciting performance, is why keelboats now make up some of the biggest and most active racing fleets. In Hong Kong our most popular keelboat class is the J/80.
