Advice required

Hi all,

I'm just returning to dinghy sailing after several years and looking for some advice as to the best dinghy to suit my needs. My sailing will largely be done on a large inland reservoir with the occasional foray off the North Devon coastline. I want to be able to take others out with me and, more importantly, I'm past my 50th year so don't want anything too 'frisky'. I'm thinking 'Wayfarer' at the moment but would welcome any advice that anyone cares to offer.

Re: Advice required

How about a Hawk 20? Small enough to be fun, stable enough for friends and fine for coastal work.
