It's that time of year

New to us a Wanderer dinghy, small relation to the Wayfarer both designed by Ian Proctor.

At 14 feet LoA and while no means a light weight, it should be easier to handle ashore that a Wayfarer, but seems to have similar good sea keeping qualities. We wanted something suitable for sailing out in the western Solent which is where we will keep her.

It seems to have pretty much rained every weekend since I towed it home, I'm looking forward to setting up and rigging and generally go over our new toy.

We’re lucky that there are plenty of these types of dinghy available here, I guess if we lived down your way i’d Be building to one of Mr Welsford’s plans - Houdini, Pathfinder or awol are my favourites.
