If you want to learn to sail, nothing beats learning to sail a dinghy. Dinghy sailing lessons provide the best possible foundation for your sailing skills and an exhilarating pure form of sailing not experienced on bigger boats. If you learn to sail a dinghy it allows you to become part of a delicate balance between wind, water, boat & crew. You glide along, just inches from the water, one hand on the tiller and the other on the sheet, and instantly feel a reaction for every action you take.
Watch the sailing programs on TV or browse through the sailing magazines and you may think that to learn how to sail a dinghy is difficult, but that’s not the case. To learn to sail a dinghy is really very simple; a skilled instructor can teach you the basics of dinghy sailing in a weekend. Most beginners are able to sail a dinghy on their own after just a few days of dinghy sailing lessons.
