Buying a boat
This is a key next step – after their second season of sailing, sailors are expected to own their own boat. Keep an eye on the club notice board, Apollo Duck https://sailingdinghies.apolloduck.co.uk/, ebay and relevant Facebook groups including https://www.facebook.com/groups/479177399116062/ . For those less experienced, we are happy to support and help you in viewing boats.
