|Here, small is beautiful... this page will
cover small, open, sailing craft and the other pages in the section are:
Canoes and Kayaks -
the sporting use of paddles but we'd also be fascinated to hear from
those whose only form of transport is one or the other. If you are
involved in the world of canoes and kayaks in any way, we're hoping to
hear your story. This page will include vessels fitted with one or more
is about the more traditional form of individual water transport but
covers the ultra-modern too. We'd love to hear about how you enjoy your
rowboat alone or in the company of others.
Tenders deals with the vessels
used to ferry passengers and crew, to and from larger vessels - the
range is enormous and we're interested to know why you favour your
choice of tender - for reasons of reliability, ease of stowage, comfort
and dryness, inexpensive propulsion, or whatever...
The little sailing dinghy pictured here, was to be seen scooting
around English Harbour, Antigua in the West Indies, while we were there
in May. We loved the way its occupant reclined in what appeared to be
total comfort whilst getting around almost as fast as those of us with
inflatables and outboard motors!
There was another very similar vessel
zooming around earlier, too, but, unfortunately, there was no time to fetch the
camera as it flashed past!
We'd love to hear about your small craft - don't worry about your writing
skills, we can always edit!
Your pictures will also be welcomed.
