Title: Resources List
Post by: revision on August 24, 2018, 01:49:40 AM
I'm going to post things that I am finding useful here for others.

This is a history of minis ( as well as info on each by hull number.  I know this is linked in the sticky as well, but I never actually found it until now via here, I had found it via google.

Here is an English speaking facebook group ( called North America Mini Class that has a relatively responsive group of owners.

This is an info page ( with lots of good links and info (especially regarding the Pogo 2 class boats) by Josh at Abilyn Racing.  He has moved on from the mini class, but the info is still relevant.

This is the Sailing Anarchy ( North American Mini Transat thread.

This is a post (,3848.msg18030.html#msg18030) I am working on here with information on the races available in the U.S. for minis.

This is a link to the classifieds section  ( the ClasseMini website, which appears to be the best place to find a race ready mini. (I have linked this through Google Translate as most ads are posted in French.)

This is the class information of each boat. (  Some of the boats have information about design and past race history.  If it is not listed here, then it is not an official mini.

Here is a place where you can buy a pre-cut plywood mini kit  ( Dudley Dix design in 4 different configurations.  Plans are available separately and cheaper here. (

From the old site, this is design information on series boats ( and this is info on proto design rules. (

Here is a cool site ( with sailing speed records.

This PDF link ( is for US Sailing's safety equipment guidelines.

This link takes you to ( World Sailing's Offshore page, which includes the safety checklists for each category of race if you click on "Offshore Special Regulations."

This is a youtube video that  ( the inside of a Pogo 2 series boat prepped for the transat race, to give you an idea of size and space when in racing trim.

A list of old and new series boats (, courtesy of Thomas, and translated via google.  As he updates the post, this should also stay current.

I will edit this as I find more resources.
