My wife and I have just started sailing this summer. We took lessons in an Echo 12'' dinghy, and have been using an 18'' Sandpiper that is available to club members. We have a difference of opinion to what our first boat should be. She thinks we should get something like a CL16 or Wayfarer16 dinghy. I''m leaning more to a 17'' Siren, a Sandpiper, or a Sirius21. I feel we would get more use out of a cabin style boat in spring and fall when weather is cooler and you want to stay dry. Also want someting trailerable. We sail on a large lake north of L.Ontario.
