Hey - I learnt the most on a beach cat... They're so stable, comfortable, way more pleasant to sail than the lasers and other dinghies. I'm sort of with rebel heart and Boatman, though - I do believe you learn best on a smaller one or two man boat
without an engine
- and once you've figured out how the wind
works, then you can go get an engine
for backup. Well, not on a beachcat or laser.... But ya know what I mean!
