Welcome to the Mini Tonner Class (UK)
This Class has been revived as a way to bring together the owners of small sailing yachts.  Approx. 20-24ft LOA / (6.0 -7.5m) - that had an IOR rating of not greater than 16.5ft (see our Class Background page for further Rule definitions) and/or were built within the 'spirit' of the IOR Mini Tonner Yachts*. 
The aim of this site is to provide a Forum to build the Mini Tonner community and to keep its members informed.
It would be great if you'd add your boat and your sailing area to our members' list - so we can all look out for each other!  If you are not sure if your boat qualify's, then please just drop us a line to ask. Email is easy and is listed on the contact us page.
We have regattas and class starts organised throughout the year - so get involved!
If you haven't got a boat already then Mini Tonner sailing has to be about the least expensive and fun way into Cruiser sailing/racing - our class ethos is definately for affordable 'entry level' sailing.  Check out the Boats For Sale page on the Forum to find yourself a bargain!

* The IOR Mini Tonner class of yachts included not only one-off racing yachts - but it also spawned many designs that became 'One-Design' or production mini ton boats, such as the E-Boat, Limbo 6.6 and Hunter Sonata.
