The Dinghy is a lug-rigged sailing vessel, meaning the upper side of the sail is supported by a yard and the lower side of the sail is held by a boom that continues as far forward of the mast as the leading edge of the yard. Lugged-rigged sails are easy to raise and handle, and require relatively short spars and lines to rig. A fin keel helps the Dinghy sail straight while unattended, even in strong winds.
Sea Flea Pocket Yachts are the smallest functional sailboats in the world! They literally sail on a breath of wind in seas as small as a kitchen sink, and need only scissors to assemble. Once the kit is opened, they are ready to sail in minutes. Fully adjustable sail and keel fin make sailing on all points possible.
