If you are a newcomer to dinghy sailing, and are now ready to buy your first sailing dinghy, there are a few guidelines you need to follow. Your first sailing dinghy will often be the reason you give up sailing as something only madmen do, or, it will convert you to a happy life of uncomfortable, cold, wet weekends.
A true dinghy sailor is a multi tasking professional. Although sailing can be strenuous, it is not overly demanding physically. As a restful pastime very little can beat sailing, although racing a sailing dinghy can be very tense and often stressful.
