From Dinghies to Windsurfers

By Benjamin Cesare

From Dinghies to Windsurfers

by SOLVIG SAYRE If you want to start racing windsurfers, you have an advantage being a dinghy sailor. Racing dinghies and Techno-293s are almost the same on paper. We have the same governing bodies, rules (with a few exceptions), courses, and basic tactics.

Three earlier trips had been very different, but shared common elements we love: (1) visiting beautiful geographic locations, (2) swimming in warm ocean water, (3) snorkeling among colorful fish, and (4) sailing! In less than a year we had already experienced three wonderful voyages…
