The Starlet, a Townson Starling with a jib.

Starlet Dinghy

A Starlet is a Starling hull with a rig suitable for two ten year olds. Shorter mast, same sail area, recycled old hull and all sail controls at the mast. Simple layout! North makes the jib for $250 and will recut the Starling main for $250. $200 of new hardware gives a useful and inexpensive training yacht for kids that prefer sailing with a friend.

The pictures below are from the launch at Glendowie on Sunday Sept 17th 2006.
