I have been sailing for quite a number of years. During that time I have seen students of the local sailing schools go through their dinghy training and receive their certifications. Once the students complete their training they occassionally have access to dinghies for recreation purposes. I want to provide some local racing activity for these students on a slightly larger scale. For this reason I want to secure a rock solid small, 26ft, but functional boat for the student to experience racing at club level. The local clubs have willing students that have come from the dinghy schools but not enough larger boats to crew on.
