Whitecap Composites was established in response to a need for dependable and high quality one-design racing sailboats. We were approached by a number of institutional coaches who felt collegiate racing would benefit from boats with improved structural integrity, a higher level of consistency, and a more performance oriented feel.
We are a team of passionate sailors, racers, and boat builders. Our experiences have taught us that individual groups use their boats differently, and we have the flexibility to incorporate any custom requests into our boats.
“Upon delivery and sailing of my new 420’s, I immediately noticed how much lighter and stiffer the boats were from my previous fleet….The boats are uniquely one design and perfectly matched”
“At MIT our boats get more institutional use and abuse than any other sailing program in the country. What is most remarkable is how much our maintenance costs have diminished since purchasing boats made by Whitecap Composites. Furthermore, with these boats MIT is hoping to reduce the frequency of replacement, which adds great value for our program which is supported almost entirely by alumni contributions.”
