Re: My idea of hell...

The secret to a tippy boat is that you need wind to lean against then it is surprisingly pleasent.Never go out unless there is at least 5Mph of wind to support you,Doe`s sound a bit of a bad day.

Re: Iconic dinghies

most dinghy sailors will just glaze over at the idea that some boat somewhere was famous because...(fill in reason), unless it did something truly spectacular.

Re: Personal Handicaps?
