Dinghies are small sailing boat usually sailed by two people. Dinghy sailors must move about the boat constantly to counteract the force of the wind in the sails.
Learning to sail in a dinghy is a great way to start. Simple in design, they are easy to setup and are light to handle. A dinghy responds quickly to your movements and sail adjustments, making it easy to see the effects of your actions.
Sailing a dinghy is extremely engaging and exciting.
Sailing a Keelboat is probably one of the easiest ways to go sailing. A keelboat has a weighted keel under the hull that prevents it from capsizing. They are larger than dinghies and are usually kept in the water, on a mooring or at a marina.
Keelboats do not offer the fast response and instant feedback of dinghies because of their greater size and weight. However a keelboat is generally more stable and dry and often more comfortable to sail.
Our Keelboats are set up to accommodate a crew of four or five people with a Yachting Australia qualified Instructor on board.
