The Banshee Dinghy is built for speed and racing. People compare it to the laser but much more comfortable. It has a large sail and cat-rigged mast that allows for maximum wind speed and power. The lightweight materials and thin width allows for maximum speed. Two people can fit on the dinghy but traditionally only one person rides the Banshee because of its race use.
People love the Banshee dinghy because it is fast but also comfortable. The laser is an extremely competitive racing boat but it is not comfortable or ideal for longer treks. The Banshee is the Arabian horse to the laser Quarterback. Extremely fast but also built well enough for the endurance racer. If you’re racing more than just a simple than a single lap around a pool then the Banshee will is what you need.
You will also be able to move around after the race unlike the much in-pain laser racer.
The history of the Banshee dinghy sailboat begins with Richard Reid in 1969. He had been building Flying Juniors and winning races. He started to play around with the model but still using the hull as the base. He began working on the Banshee and distributing the boat in San Jose and Foster City CA. He raised Venture Capital funding for a mass market release and now you are able to get your favorite Banshee Dinghy Sailing boat.
