Okay, in chronological order

Optimist x 3 (one half shared) - class racing for 8 years
420 (half share) - class racing for 2 years
Laser - class racing for 5 years
N12 - fun sailing, no fleet racing for 18 months (during uni, so team and match racing mainly)
Laser - class racing for 3 years, sold as I was bored of Lasers

RS600 - fun sailing, not much racing for 18 months
RS200 - sailing with wife, 4 weeks during the 600 period

RS Vareo x 2 - handicap racing, <12 months
Musto Skiff - handicap racing, <18 months
Phantom - handicap racing, < 12 months
RS300 - handicap racing, <12 months

RS100 - class racing, >12 months, sold due to injury

Cherub hybrid - barely sailing, intention to handicap race <6 months

Solo - class racing, >12 months and still enjoying it

I also own a Beneteau 21.7 for family fun times (floating wendyhouse in the sun), we have owned this for 5 years now.  And probably about 10 windsurf boards, with 3 on the go in the UK at any one time.

Other boats I have had a go in:

erm, the ones I can remember...

Cadet, Mirror, Laser radial, laser 4.7, Laser 2, Lark, Firefly, L2K, L3000, L4000, L5000, Hobie, Dart 15, Dart 18, Concept 302, 370, 505, Hobie 405, 404, Fireball, Devoti Finn (nicest dinghy I've ever sailed), Contender, RS700, RS400, RS800, Boss, Iso, Topper, Byte, Spice, Blaze Mk1, Low rider moth (sort of), RS feva single handed (surprisingly good fun!), Laser Vago (wanted to hate it, but it was actually alright), 18 ft skiff, Int 14 (penny), Hunter 707,  Etchells, Sonar, Sonata, Sigma 33, Sigma 38, First 38s5, Jouet 920, custom 1/2 tonner + a couple of other random crewing gigs that I can't really remember.

Next boat I want to have a go in:  Int Moth

Next boat I want to own:  depending on circumstances- Canoe, Icon, D-One, Contender or OK

Yes you are.

So, who's the winner/biggest boat tart?

A cardboard box is more streamlined!
It was my first ever boat/taught myself to sail in (couldn't afford a Mirror)
