Must. Not. Spend. More. Money

I bought a dingy before I hit my teens.

It was an 8′ GRP; I used her on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, in the summers, until I left home.

She looked a lot like this:

Years later, no longer in my teens, I learned to sail.

Stripped down, as you’d expect a racer to be, she was fast, nimble, responsive; everything a serious racing yacht should be.

They say you should never go back to an old flame.

But are they always right?
