Re: From Dinghy Sailor to Cruising
I did the same transition 4 years ago - I had sailed a 14' dinghy for a couple years and I bought a 27' Oday. The big boat is a LOT easier to sail. It's harder to maintain, but sailing is 100% easier.
The big boat will be more powerful, but also much more stable. It's like going from a dirtbike to a humvee. I can only imagine what its like to move to an even bigger boat.
