Chris Kitchen’s Tips

Communication with the Membership: There is no UK forum. Notices may be circulated to the membership by emailing the Chairman/Sec/POC who will forward the notice via e-mail to the association’s Group Address List. To be placed on this list e-mail the Chairman (above). The international forum is a true ‘Weta village’ - all Weta owners including newbies are welcomed enthusiastically.  Wetamarine NZ posts newsletters on their website from time to time. Their website is in any case much improved and will give anyone seeking a Wetafix something to watch or think about during the winter

Welcome to the Weta Class Association Website


The Weta is a 14ft ‘dinghy’ trimaran suitable for use by one to three people. It can be sailed as a single-handed racing dinghy with skiff-like characteristics, as a general purpose recreational boat with cruising potential, as a training boat and as a boat suitable, with the addition of a special seat, for disabled sailing. Unlike most catamarans it sails more or less level, rather than on one hull. It was designed in New Zealand and is named after the Wetapunga - a native of New Zealand and reputedly the world’’s largest insect. They do not bite and are regarded with affection in that country. The pondskater-like appearance of the boat may have influenced the choice of name.
