The 49erFX is a women's two person high performance skiff. The 49er has been sailed in the Olympics since Sydney 2000 as a men's two person boat. For the first time in 2016, the skiff was made a women's class as well. Same hull, different rig (FX stands for fractional rig). The boat is fast and requires high levels of athleticism from both the skipper and crew, with the crew having by far the heaviest workload.
We love this boat and can't get enough of it!
