Welcome to the North American 49er Class Page! We want you to join us and have fun racing the 49er (or 49erFX). We have a robust racing scene comprising Olympic sailors, hopefuls, weekend warriors and youth sailors.
The 49er is one of the most challenging boats out there, but also one of the most rewarding in terms of the speeds it can offer for very little effort. Furthermore, the addition of both a carbon mast and the FX rig, the boat has become far more saileable than it once was.
The 49er offers exciting and close racing in a one-design fleet, where you can measure yourself against some of the best sailors out there. We have a robust used market for boats and equipment with distribution of parts and boats supported by Pitch Pole Skiff Products in Montreal, Canada.
