These are the decisions all great Admirals struggle with. Dog... or beer? (Lord Nelson famously opted for "a hip flask and smallish dog" -- it's why he won at Abukir Bay, some historians think.)

Yeah, we dinghy sail. You are right, it is physical and uncomfortable and rife with crowded moments. Wouldn't trade it for anything. My girlfriend finds the Buccaneer too demanding, agility-wise. She enjoys it but bruises easily.
