which racing dingy to start in the ocean?

There are small dinghies that can be raced in the ocean, but I don''t know of any of them that are both beachable and offer any cruising accomodations. A boat like the Tripp 26 or Beneteau First 23 offers centerboard convenience and some accomodations, but neither are ''beachable'' at least not on purpose. If you did not want to race, a small trimarran like the Tremelino offers a good compromise.
