I like Sirens, they are the Piper Cub of trailer sailors- forgiving boats that are easy to learn to sail, need little maintenance, aren't afraid of a breeze and will keep you from emptying your bucket of luck while you fill your cup of experience.

Two novice sailors decided to slip their new-to-them boats on our dock last season. Both bought Sirens, and both had more time under sail all season than many of the bigger boats on the dock, and grins just as wide as the rest of us. One owner has a Minn Kota trolling motor on the transom- it isn't fast, but it is enough to get him in and out of the marina.
