Re: Hello from Botswana

Welcome to sailnet Bruzo.
I recently finished reading the Alexander McCall Smith Mma Ramotswe books (Ladies No. 1 detective agency). Sounds like a great place to be.

Are these the boats that you are currently using: Range - RS Sailing

If so they seem like a fairly advanced model for beginner sailors or children.
I help teach teenagers here to learn to sail on Sunfish (14' lateen rigged single sail).
They may not be raced at the olympic level but they make a good learning platform.
Optimist sailboats are raced in the olympics, I believe; but they are better for kids than adults.
I wish you every success in your sailing eneavours.
