UQ Sailing has 5 pacers, which is a two-person, two sail monohulls. These are really fun monohulls to start racing in and are ideal in a variety of wind conditions.
Traditionally, it is a resort boat with no boom and plastic hulls, a slug in the light winds but in heavy weather, it shows you its true colours. The ideal crew is two in light conditions or three in 20+ knots.
A $50 damage deposit is taken for each rental this will be returned at the end of the rental assuming no damage has been done to the boat and it has been correctly packed up.
