ISO Characteristics

All-rounder - Hull characteristics suit skiff/asymmetric open events as well as club level, round the cans racing.  Hull design is good for inland waters but also works well in a sea/waves.

Adaptable - Wide range of age, weight, gender options are competitive. Flexible rules regarding position of controls, and ISO-2 _fitting  areas_ allows different helm/crew role allocations. (e.g. gennaker can be rigged for hoisting by crew or helm and either automatic or manual pole launch).

Affordable - new ISO-2 boats are competitively priced. Good second hand boats are available for under £1000

Robust - Hulls are built to last and remain competitive. Early boats from 1990s are still racing. ISO-2 Epoxy hull will be even stronger/stiffer.

Maintainable - ALL class specific parts are supplied by Vantage Sailing which has strong ties to the class. The ISO Class association ensures continuing supply of boats and parts. Major brands Ronstan, Super Spars, English Braids supporting new ISO-2 initiative.
