Sailing has been my hobby for 35 years. In the warm waters of Malaysia, I usually started sailing (in a small dinghy) by doing a capsize drill and finished with another capsize drill. Here in NZ I found that the water is freezingly cold. So, I use a boat that does not capsize. Large trailer yachts cannot capsize but they cannot plane either. They are excellent for cruising and for exploring the many fresh water lakes near Rotorua, Taupo and the harbours at Raglan, Tauranga and Paihia.
