Re: Buying our first sailboat

Ian, When I was seven years old, my dad bought me and my sister a (optimist Pram). This little boat was not big enough for four people, but for me and my sister it was perfect. They used to have pram races sponsored by different organizations including yacht clubs.They were Gaf-rigged.and very easy to rig from a pickup truck with a square Bow. ,However after reading post 7 I think that would be a much better option.
