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 performance, 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, not 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.
