Thanks for the encouragement! Those two boats look good, and if I get a keelboat I would like bilge keels. The bigger thing for me right now is planning when and how to do it because I work
. There are training
centres here, but no clubs. The best workaround I have is to get some basic training and then just take time off work and get on with it. Day sailing
a little boat
around Britain with no obligation to finish or go out in bad weather
feels like an achievable goal. My family
are in Hull
, so if I joined a club I could use it as home base.
This way I wouldn't be trailering, but sailing near Hull and then going off further when I felt like I could do it without dying.
