Wish the launching experience had been as good. I know I should not generalise, but with the amount of negative experiences I have had, I would just like to say - I HATE DINGHY SAILORS. There feel better already
Blessed are the dinghy sailors for they will inherit the slipway!
3 weeks to go and we're back on the water.

Nope, sorry Peter I do not agree, Lymington has the worst one by far!
Has anyone in Christchurch or Poole taken a swing at you just for launching your boat?

Something really should be done about the arrogant attitude of the nearby sailing club to the 'PUBLIC' slipway at Lymington.I have experienced and witnessed some unbelievable behaviour there by the dinghy sailors ,but if someone took a swing at me i know what my response would be.
