Wild is the Wind...

I got a new boat. This time it's a dinghy designed for racing, a WildWind DG-470, upon recommendation from a friend. It was so inexpensive I really didn't have to think twice about buying it.

This is a VERY different sailing experience. On this boat, I have to manually shift my weight, and it has a spinnaker. Oh boy!

Ironically enough, I've never used a Tako, which has a spinnaker. I've got a bit more to learn about sailing! It's all well and good, I guess... that new J-Class coming soon from Jacqueline Trudeau uses a spinnaker, I will need the practice. ;)
