Just in case anyone else wants the info about Dingy sailing, and the Spinnaker club in Ringwood... and whilst I'm waiting for a new RIB.

I did go down to Spinnaker in Ringwood, and did my RYA level 2 in Dingy Sailing, and joined on a 6 month temp basis for 26 quid (I think). This enables you to go down there on a monday night and hire a dingy out, be it a topper, wayfarer, gps or feva. They also have a couple of Avon Seariders on the ready just in case you capsize right the way over, with the sail facing down under the water.. glad I did once as I was showed the correct way to rescue someone in the water with a capsized dingy, and how to bring the dingy back to the shore/pontoon.

Dave... try here.

www.thetrailersailercentre.co.uk/

They usually have a fair selection of boats. Right state of tide the centre has direct access to Chichester Harbour, sheltered waters and a great place to pootle around in a small boat.
