Re: question about dinghy sailing

Most dinghys will take on considerable water without capsizing. Don't be afraid to get the rail wet and keep a bailer/bilge pump accessible. Most people are afraid to let a boat heel because they have no idea how far over you can go. If you have a friend with a sunfish or laser let them show you once the water warms up.
