Micro Class is a class where small trailerable sailboats can race in elapsed time.
Founded in 1977 on the initiative of French magazine Bateaux (sailboats), it is based on the dimensions of existing vessels like Corsaire but soon the major shipyards offered new boats dedicated to this class. Today the races are still animated. There are three distinct types of Micro: One-off, Regatta and Cruiser.
