    a quick post by way  of introduction.  I have just purchased W2713 a composite Mach 1.  Needs a little bit of work before seeing the water but I’m cracking on with that quite well.

    I’m interested in doing some dinghy camping and cruising with my teenage children and probably solo too.

    I sailed dinghys quite a lot in my youth, mainly a GP 14 but also a wayfarer, and have done a few trips at sea in yachts. But that was a long time ago and I have a lot to remembered and even more to learn! Am really looking forward to that process.
