Yes - first in a Sabot and last in Impulse
Yes - although some here might consider that I still sail a dinghy..

Yes, no & don't know.

I learned to sail from a school that had a collection of POS boats, then went to a Beneteau 36.7 to race, now moving to a C&C 33 to race. Last fall I tried frostbiting in dinghies, but found that I need some time alone not racing to get the hang of these things. I think I'd actually like just cruising around in one as opposed to racing. They are fun, but I'm not too secure with them yet. Sort of afraid, really, but getting out & learning will help me overcome that.
I want to be so famous that drag queens will dress up like me in parades after I'm dead.

Yes, Yes & Yes

Been sailing a Lightning for about 30 years. Have raced Lightnings & Sunfish around the Southeast but do relatively little racing these days. Have plenty of frineds with bigger boats who always are looking for crew and someone to help the with electrical, plumbing and other problems that I love to work on but don't care to "own" - maybe in a few years.

I enjoy cruising but camping & sailing together is pretty nice as well.
