The Windmill is a 15 1/2 foot, 2-person racing dinghy designed by boat-builder Clark Mills in 1953. Having designed the Optimist Pram in 1947, Clark saw a need for a 2-person high performance dingy that can be inexpensively constructed by amateur builders. The class has since evolved with the times to allow fiberglass construction and aluminum spars, yet both wooden and fiberglass Windmills remain equally competitive. The Windmill is a born racer. Its narrow, hard-chined planing hull provides high performance. Being a non-trapeze, non-spinnaker boat makes the Windmill accessible to a wide range of sailing skills.

The Windmill Class is a National Association of Owners and Builders of the Windmill One-Design Sailboat. Clark Mills designed the Windmill to be a challenging and exciting boat for teens to sail when they graduated from his Opti design. Today the Windmill Class brings families together from across the country to enjoy the thrill of friendly rivalry on the water and camaraderie ashore.
