Annapolis Etchells fleet 28 has grown to 27 boats since the first boat arrived in April, 2001. This makes it the largest Etchells fleet on the NA east coast (Halifax, Marblehead, Narragansett Bay, Long Island Sound, Milford (CT), Buzzards Bay, Lake Champlain, Oriental [NC] and Biscayne Bay) and the 2nd largest in the US after San Diego.
Etchells is a big, fast, simple, stable and sleek racing sloop that can be sailed competitively by three or four average sailors (crew weight limit 628 lbs.). It can tack in 70 degrees and has a low wetted surface hull form that keeps moving in the slightest breeze. In 20+ knots it absolutely flies.
