The Estuary One Design Class has been sailed at the Essex Yacht Club since 1920 and counts the Essex Yacht Club as its home base. There are around 20 boats based at the club, with a full, keenly contested, racing programme throughout the season.
The boats are 18 feet long are usually raced with 3 crew. As well as the EOD class at the Club, there is also an Estuary Class Association open to Estuary sailors outside the EYC. In practice, the Class Captain is also head of the Association.
The class has their own website available at: http://www.estuaryonedesign.com/
