Re: Recommend a Dinghy for Cruising Caribbean

Lightning is certainly a wonderful sailing boat, but it might be too much rig for sailing single-handed when the breeze is up. I had a reefing points sewn into my Lightning mail and a storm jib, which helped. I was in my twenties when I had that boat and now, at 50, it seems like a lot of boat for one.
