The Elliot 6m was present in the 2012 London Olympic Games as the women's match racing class. Greg Elliott was the designer of the Elliot 6m. The keel racer is quick-moving, nimble, and physical to sail. The large open-style cockpit ensures flat-out hiking by the three crew. Sail controls are led through a tunnel in the floor to maximize work space. Elliott 6m are ideal for use in class racing, match racing, open racing, yacht club programmes, keelboat training and youth development.
