AVENGER is Uffa’s most famous design and was the biggest single break through in yacht design as the first planing dinghy. In 1928 in the highly competitive National Fourteen Foot development class Uffa had the incredible record of 52 firsts from 57 starts including the Prince of Wales Cup.

Uffa's story of Avenger is told in his 1934 book Sailing, Seamanship and Yacht Construction or an abridged version in The Best of Uffa edited by Guy Cole (still in print with Adlard Coles Nautical, London).
