sailing dinghy uses a pivoting lee board (placed on starboard but it could
go on port if desired) so it is ensured of a good windward performance and a
spacious interior. The square shape of the dinghy gives surprising stability
and its light weight means a responsive sailing experience. The Origami
sailing dinghy is a surprisingly good little craft which is guaranteed to
bring a smile to your face. And at the end of the day, it packs away in
moments to a
tiny package that can be stowed almost anywhere.
