Windward Boatworks is your complete source for Butterfly Sailboats & Parts. We have been building Butterfly sailboats since 2006.  Butterfly sailboats are large enough to accommodate several people, fast enough for serious competition, light enough for launching by one person, and virtually maintenance free. The Butterfly has a strong National Organization and holds annual National Championship regattas. From a cottage boat to serious one-design racer – the Butterfly does it all.

2023 Butterfly Nationals was awesome!

What a great week of sailing on Crystal Lake and what an excellent event. The turnout was spectacular with 43 Butterfly sailboats in the junior division and 36 in the open division. There were seven different attending clubs at the event as well. You can not thank the Crystal Lake YC and its members enough for making this a world class event. The Butterfly sailboat world is alive vibrant and growing and we look forward to next years event at Glen Lake in 2024!
