Re: Do you actually like sailing ?

Hi all from germany. I liked sailing in a dingy and small boat like my Folkboat i owned 10 years. It was like forgetting everything and just get the flow with the wind the motion and the sound of water, i was sitting at the helm for hours and just looking and feeling. Now i have a 44 feet boat and it change a little bit, it is often more a nice transportation of my living area from a to b with the autopilot doing the nice steering.

But i changed it last week when i got my new hard dinghy with a 5 sqm lugger sail and i spent now several hour at the weekend to sail with my dinghy arround the anchorage to get the same mood like years before. Really nice to buy a hard dinghy ( two part) instead of an inflatable
