The 2.4 metre originated in Stockholm in 1986. It is a thoroughbred racer that has the complexity of a sophisticated keelboat with the fingertip feeling of a dinghy. Since the helmsperson sits down in the boat facing forward with all of the trim controls within arms reach, the sailing is not physically demanding and these attributes make the 2.4mR ideal for disabled sailors.
