From The Isle of Wight to Barbados with Seaview Dinghies

An unusual sight has been spotted off the Barbados’ west coast; a colourful fleet of 15 wooden clinker-built dinghies enjoying a week of racing, and fun, having travelled all the way from Seaview on the Isle of Wight by banana boat.

Founded in 1931, the Sea View One-Design Dinghy class is thriving with over 200 of these beautiful classic design boats based in the village of Seaview on the Isle of Wight.  It is apparently the largest one-design classic dinghy class sailing in a single place, anywhere in the world.

Admiral Boat Insurance are proud to have provided insurance cover for this active dinghy class continuously for more than 30 years now under Admiral’s boat fleet policy, including this adventurous trip.

If you have more than one boat, and would like to save time and money with our boat fleet policy, please give us a call on +44 (0)1722 416106, or email us through our contact us page.
