Don't worry Tim, you'll get there! It's great that you can get out for a sail with just a small crew. I've been sailing dingies for years now and I just bought my first boat recently, a 25' racer/cruiser design. I have the opposite problem from you -- I can sail up to almost anything, but I can't motor to save my life! :) I do recommend sailing on small boats some because they're more responsive ... give you quicker feedback about what you should be doing differently. If you're ever in Boston MA, get in touch... I'll get you doing man-overboard drills on anything from one of my boat clubs' 4.2m planing centerboard dingies on the Charles river, up to my own 25ft fin keel sloop on the harbor.

Hi SnowbikerGood to hear from you again.I'm sorry we did not get to connect as we sailed by Boston in the Wanderbird, but I'll look forward to taking you up on your offer when I next get to the US.I've had a few people nudge me, enquiring when I'll next be over there!RegardsTim

I used to own a big old fishing trawler - Lady JaneAfter years of toil and fun, I've sold the trawler and bought a beautiful ketch - Arctic Rose This blog is about the progress I made with Lady Jane and the start of a completely different lifestyle with Arctic Rose, and other fun stuff.
