The Supernova is a
"one design" single handed sailing dinghy of 4.3 metres length with an
8 square metre fully battened mylar sail and stayed mast. It was originally designed and built by Mark Giles. It is

Sail numbers for the MK II start at 1000 and sail numbers for the new epoxy built boats starts at 1033.
