H Class Racing
The Doughdish is the only Herreshoff 12 ½ reproduction in fiberglass that is universally accepted to race in the H Class. The H Class Association is an active group of owners and Herreshoff 12 admirers. You can register in the H Class to be in touch with this community and it is an excellent source for information, fleet contacts and racing opportunities.
For more information please visit the H Class Association web site or contact them at: H Class Association, PO Box 945, Marion, MA 02738
Another Herreshoff resource is: The Herreshoff Registry which keeps track of the original wooden Herreshoff 12s and other boats built by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company.
If you are interested in racing, contact your local Yacht club and see if they do class racing for the Herreshoff 12 ½. Below is a contact list for the most active H-Class fleets. If your local club does not have an organized fleet, but you would like to race, contact us and we will try to help you to establish one.
