I learned on a Lido 14, three years ago. Moved to a 30' Shields Keel Boat, then to a 42' Coastal cruiser. I then boat my own 30' boat a year ago. I did not want to start on a dinghy sailer but that is what the school offered. After the classes I really fell in love with them. For the last 3 months on the Lido's I was single handling and had a blast. In my opinion you get a better feel for sailing with them, especially when just starting out and they are so responsive. Frankly, I miss the Lido 14' and have thought about buying a used one just to play with.

The optimist expects the wind. The pessimist complains about the wind. The realist adjusts the sails.
