The US12 class is a beautiful full keel, spoon bow yacht of the old America’s Cup 12 meter design. She is 46 inches in length with a 16 pound minimum weight, carries a rig of 714 sq. inches of sail area, with a 55 inch hoist. Her “B” rig is 600 sq. inches. She is a great sailing yacht, goes to weather with neutral helm and will track the length of the pond seeking out the wind, and handles wind of 15 knots well before the need to use the “B” rig.
