Re: question about dinghy sailing

I would suggest that if you are taking a timid tenderfoot out in a dinghy, that you go over the capsize first. Do it on purpose, right the boat, do it again a few times. Do it when the winds are light and the weather is warm, so there will be the minimum reasons for fear.

You absolutely *can* sail a dinghy without capsizing it, but if you/she are afraid of it, then you'll be tense the whole time and not having much fun.
