Hello Dinghy Cruisers,
This forum was instrumental in my choice of boat when I was looking for a dinghy to buy. Judith Morris posed a question as to which dinghy would suit herself and her husband and her criteria fitted mine so well I had only to consider all the excellent advice you guys gave to provide me with a shortlist. So many thanks!
I chose a Tideway. Her name is "Sparrow" and she was my 60th birthday present back in December last year. Since when I have had many happy hours getting to know her on my local lake and have been to a Tideway Owners' meeting at the Ullswater YC.
I only started sailing last year and so I am inexperienced but Malcolm Lawrence, who sails at the same club as me, and also has a Whammel on Ullswater, assured me that I would be welcome and so I have joined. I hope to be meeting some of you soon.
