That Yellow welly is there anything he's never owned?

Had a go in
RS800, 505, Laser, Supernova.

Want to have a go in one day

PS, Nothing with lead or an engine counts.

Owned

4 Cherubs, 2 Gulls, 11+, Harrier, PlusPlus, IC, vintage (Skol) Moth, a board or two

Had a go in,

Oh gosh, I've never kept track. I honestly don't know. A fair few...
Lets think,

loads of Cherubs, ICs, RS200, 300, 400, 500, 600, thin and foil moths, Fireball, 470, Scorpion, Pluses, Enterprises, GP14s, Thames Rater, 4Tonner, Boss, Wayfarer, Heron, Solo, Laser, Byte, Vortex, Iso, Blaze, I14s, EPS, 12ft Skiff, 29er, Topper, British Moth, Europe, various boards, probably more if I stop and think about it some more

Get next
probably another Canoe

Some day
Well a C Class cat would be nice [grin]. Haven't sailed any of the serious multis which is a big hole in the CV.

But yes, I usually keep a boat for years rather than weeks, so haven't had that many really.

Owned: Cadet, GP14, Lark, Fireball

Sailed: The above - obviously Smile, plus Coypu, Comet (Trio and Race), Laser (Radial & Full), Enterbox, Way-barge, RS200, RS400, Merlin, Flying Fifteen, Invader, Solo, Finn, Osprey, Ultra30, plus some lead-mines both racing & cruising.

Edit: Add Phantom to the list above - even if it buggered my knee. Rule#1: Do not try to stand up with a leg out sideways Ouch. Leadmines include: Sonata - like a big dinghy really, Folkboat - loads of character but SLOW, Hunter 707, Beneteau 40.7, Bavaria 44.

Want to try: 5o5, Viper640, Something I can helm from the wire, Foiling Moth (Not good enough, or light enough, or fast enough Unhappy )

Not a very exciting sailing CV is it? Cry

Scary when you start to think about it.

1 cadet, 1 mirror, 5 national 12's (one of them on three separate occasions!), RS600, 4 Lowrider Moths, 9 foiling Moths = 21 boats - might have some sort of problem as that's nearly a boat a year since I started owning my own.

Had a go in 3 Cherubs, 18 footer, B14, L5000, L EPS, Fireball, Blaze, RS400, RS800, Dart somethingorother,
