International Europe

UK Class Association


The Europe is a one-person dinghy designed in Belgium in 1960 by Alois Roland as a class legal Moth dinghy. The design later evolved into its own one-design class. From 1992 to 2008, the Europe was the Women's Single Handed Dinghy equipment for the Olympic Games with Shirley Robertson winning a gold medal for Great Britain at the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000. Europe sailors both past and present are certain that the Europe is the ideal single handed dinghy, being technical, exciting and fun. The Europe remains a very popular class on the continent and there is a strong and growing fleet in the UK, with a fun and friendly community surrounding the UK class!
