Re: Is Dinghy sailing for me?

I agree with nolatom. The small boats such as you were on are very physical. I started out on a 22 footer and didn't need to move much at all while under sail. Mostly it was to raise and lower the anchor or raise and lower the sails. But I wasn't hopping from one side of the cockpit to the other as the boom moved across the boat. Weight distribution wasn't as much of a factor on that size boat.

Best of luck.
