I've always had a passion for the water, and sailing in particular. After learning on a Laser, I progressed to a Fireball dinghy followed by c. 10 years sailing a variety of yachts around the UK, France and Spain. Now... I'm going back to dinghies and looking forward to it. 2012 will find me at the dinghy show in London searching out our next family dinghy.

This seems like a good place to start....the beginning. The choices you have are to a degree determined by:

  • proximity to a suitable lake & club or school
  • proximity to the coast
  • do you like getting wet
  • how much do you like your creature comforts
  • your willingness to travel
