RYA 1 & 2

Joseph and his friend Toby spent a week doing RYA Dinghy Stages 1&2 at Hamble Sailing Club. Most evenings over dinner an excited 6 year old would tell us all about what he'd learned " a flappy sail is an unhappy sail", all about reaching and some knots.

The week ended with an epic sail across Southampton Water to Ashlett Creek aboard a Pico, Joseph has already decided that he doesn't want an Optimist as the Laser Pico is much more fun.

  1. Well done Joseph. An outstanding achievement. If I was lighter, thinner, younger, I'd quite like a pick as well!! They are rather good fun!

  2. Going to get expensive, now! :o)

    Well done to the little man..

  3. Brilliant!

    And very smart to choose a boat that's more fun than an Optimist.

  4. Thanks all - I quite like the idea of Earwegoagin's L'Opti - wonder of you could fit an opti rig on a pico?
