Hi all

Ive done bugger all sailing now for a couple of years but I'm now looking to get back out on the water.

I want a fast, hiking single hander so I'm thinking of a the RS300 or a Canoe

Any one know of any for sale, preferably in the south east

Thanks

Ian

Steve Cockerill has his 300 for sale in Hampshire, but what about Supernovas there seem to be a lot of those around on the market. Or Phantom as your on the east coast we have quite a few boats up that way. Ardleigh sailing club has a winter series and a lot of the guys are doing that, worth a visit andImage may contain: sky, cloud, outdoor, nature and water talk to Matt House or Chris Roberts They knows what's happening and what might be for sale

Thanks guys, but no IC's on the list, Steve C has sold his 300 and the supernova and phantom dont really appeal I'm afraid.

Isn't there a big fleet at Wilsonian now? There are not many clubs where you can get good single-handed fleet racing in anything but a Solo or a Laser.

What sort of budget? Then normally go on the class Facebook page and say you’re looking brings up plenty from the dinghy park.  The 300 is an ace little boat, especially if you sail somewhere coastal or roomy; the IC definitely on my bucket list though.

There are a number of H2s now on East Coast and we are about to put together an East Coast set of events for 2020. Similar speed to a  Blaze but as there are only newer boats available they are more expensive.

There was an asymmetric canoe for sale on Facebook last month, on the "Dinghies and dinghy bits for sale" page. How good a swimmer are you?  I had a canoe for a couple of seasons and never managed to finish a race without a capsize!

One hull good, two hulls better.
