The Windmill is a 15 1/2 foot, 2-person racing dinghy designed by boat-builder Clark Mills in 1953. True to his objective, Mills designed a boat that is high performance, yet can be inexpensively constructed by amateur builders. Today, both wooden and fiberglass Windmills remain equally competitive. With its narrow, hard-chined planing hull, the Windmill is a born racer. Yet being a non-trapeze, non-spinnaker boat makes the Windmill accessible to a wide range of sailing skills.
