Welcome to the British Weta Class Association Website

As you will have worked out by now we have changed our domain name.  The new name - sort of mirrors the name of the French site wetaclassefrance. This is the site produced by the UK class association (the British Weta Class Association to give it its full title) and should not be confused with the UK section of the Wetamarine website which is under the control of the manufacturers.


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 characteristics, as a general purpose recreational boat with cruising potential, as a training boat and as a boat suitable, sometimes with the addition of a special seat, for disabled sailing. Unlike most catamarans it sails more or less level, rather than 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.
