The Cherub is a small, high performance, two-man Planing dinghy first designed in 1951 in New Zealand by John Spencer. The class is a development class, allowing for significant variation in design between different boats within the rule framework. The Cherub is Bermuda-rigged with trapeze(s), and has a crew of two and use an asymmetric spinnaker. The flexibility of the class and the Cherub’s great sailing qualities mean that they attract all ages of sailors including many women.
