Free PDR Plans

The PDRacer is a developmental one design racing sailboat that is basically a plywood box with a curved bottom, and is the easiest boat in the world to build. The rules are aimed at keeping the lower 10" of all hulls the same, but the rest is up to the builder. A simple hull can be made from 3 sheets of plywood, titebond II glue, and latex house paint. If you work hard for 2 weekends, you can go sailing on the 3rd weekend.

In an effort to keep costs down and maintain the PDRacer movement as a friendly, amateurs-only experience, the three designers listed below have agreed to comply with Shorty's request to make their plans available as a free download. Click the PDF icons on the right to download any of these plans.
