Then click on 'Profile' found in in the left hand column.

Re: Singlehander?

How about my Hit advertised on here, I am sure that a reasonable offer will buy her as I'm not likely to use her and I really need the space. Perhaps that should be that the front lawn is looking like a dinghy park, sorry dear.

Re: Fireball spinnakers and a jib - anyone have any interest

Thats fine, which ones do you want? PM me an address and I will get what you want off to you. The spinnakers fold and roll up quite small but not sure about the jib as it is rolled at the moment. I will work out the cheapest postage or courier costs.

Fireball spinnakers and a jib - anyone have any interest

I bought a sail and it came as a job lot with two Fireball spinnakers and a jib. I have no use for these, I am told they are at least fifteen years old but are intact and usable. As yet I haven't taken then out of the bag. If anyone has any interest I'll take them out of the bag and take some photos...

Re: Advice needed on rigging my first dinghy

If you use the search function, top line on the right of this page. Click on that and enter torch in the search box, lots of stuff comes up but you will have to sort through it as it relates to everything with the word torch in it. There are torch dinghies hidden the other stuff such as blow torches...
