The Redwing is a keelboat originally designed by Charles Ernest Nicholson in 1896 and first raced in 1897. In 1937 the class was redesigned by Nicholson. The minor changes were used to create the 1938 Redwing that can be seen racing both outside Bembridge Harbour and in Poole Harbour on the south of England.
