The Badger Sloop is an 18-foot, sloop-rigged boat designed by the Hoofer Sailing Club. It is based on the Interlake design, but with a flatter bow and more room fore to aft for seating. Our fleet of eight boats was built by Windward Boatworks of Middleton, WI. They are a great next step after receiving your Tech rating, and with a Sloop rating, you can share the sailing experience with up to 5 of your friends.
*** In July of 2014, we switched to our new, reefable sails. At this time, all Badger Sloop ratings were temporarily suspended, pending online recertification. If your rating has been suspended and you have not yet watched the recertification video and taken the quiz, please click here. Your rating should be automatically reinstated upon completion of the quiz. ***
