finally sailing

Several years ago I met a lady with a Sparrow 16. She had a problem with her mast that day but I thought it was a cool pocket cruiser. She sent me a Small Craft Advisor article on their 10 favorite pocket cruisers(or 12?) including the Sparrow 16 and others which I would research from time to time. The desire to get something like this never left and I recently purchased a West Wight Potter 15. Been having a blast with it on Priest Lake in north Idaho. Still have a lot to learn, especially setting up and shutting down when the wind is strong.

I don't see any recent posts from sparrrow16 but think she would be happy I ended up with WWP15.

Re: finally sailing

Just went and did a little research on these boats, and they seem like a lot in a small package! Congratulations on your new boat.
