Definitions for 505

Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word 505.


  1. 505

    The International 505 is a one-design high-performance two-person monohull planing centreboard dinghy, with spinnaker, using a trapeze for the crew. While it is a high-performance boat and demanding in a blow, the 505 is an extraordinarily well-handling craft and is easier to control than many smaller trapeze boats. The genesis of the class began in 1953 with the creation of the 18-foot 'Coronet' dinghy designed by John Westell. This sailboat competed for the two-person performance dinghy classification for the Olympics at the International Yacht Racing Union trials of 1953 held at La Baule, France. In 1954, the Caneton Association of France requested John Westell to make significant changes to the design to suit their needs. This reduced the overall length, weight and sail area to become the 505, so named for its length of 5.05 metres. The class achieved international status with the IYRU in 1955. The 505 is a very popular international class and is raced actively in 18 countries around the world. World championships are held every year at locations around the world, rotating by continent, and attract over 100 boats on the start line.
