Has there been a move to get hold of single handers to sail now that most double handers cannot even get on the water ?

I guess a few lucky people can sail with families but Ive not seen any double handers on the water yet ?

Neil Young is buying a Yacht, not sure why we are focusing on Canadian musicians sailing interests

I never knew Rush were Canadian! Wondering whether Shania Twain and Celine Dion are teaming up in a 470.

Plenty of double handlers have sailed at my club, but we have plenty of family teams

You can sail many double handers solo in the light stuff, no need to buy a singlehander but of you must there are lots of cheap Lasers about.

As a double handed boat owner, one of the main issues would moving the boat around off the water and getting it up and down our slipway without assistance.

I guess Clubs will also have to think very carefully about the use of rental boats and the potential for spreading infection.
