Hi,
I've used the Topper Argo (I'm assuming same dinghy as in UK) for teaching RYA levels 1 to 3.
Stable dinghy with main & jib, but interesting with the big genniker.
You might want to invest in a reduced area mainsail, instead if reefing.

We had a problem with the floor in one of the boats - later versions have foam blocks between the hull & floor to prevent the floor from flexing and cracking. Remember that these were used for teaching, and had a harder life than most dinghies!

Enjoy tge experience,

Colin

We will sail on lakes only(decent size, say 6000 acres)up in Maine. 

Reminds me of a day trip I did decades ago on Moosehead Lake, which was fantastic. In a outboard powered dinghy sadly, but the lake seemed to go on forever, endless forests and hardly any sign of human life, and endless islands - Swallows and Amazons territory on steroids. Fab.

Sounds like heaven to me. Too bad it's so far away from where I am at the moment. I have an Argo btw and I love it.
