building a small racing sloop

Hi,

So, I was thinking of a good first boat building project. Now, my Josie''s not big enough to carry, or strong enough to tow even the smallest dingy (and still get anywhere) so I was thinking about putting together a small racing dingy to kick around the bouys on wed nights.

Does anyone know if a Laser can be made out of wood? they race those around here.

If not, ideas for simple, small, cartopable or easily towable race boats to be used either single or double handed would be apreciated.

I know I wont build anything realy competative, but I''d still like to get some time on the water in something I built.

Thoughts?

Thanks.
