- Feb 2, 2012I would guess that pretty much all forms of sailing are more pleasant in the Caribbean than in cold water, but cool water sailing is perfectly do-able if you dress up right. The Weta is a wet boat and in cool/cold water you have to wear a dry suit and waterproof gloves.If you do that the experience is highly enjoyable and at least you won't get skin cancer. See http://weta.org.uk
Scotland (water temp about 9 deg C for most of the year)

> Hi everyone. I just got back from Strictly Sail Chicago 2012 and got introduced to the weta. I hae been looking for a small boat that I can take out by myself or with 1-2 others. I've looked into the windrider, the melges17, and even a bladerider moth hydrofoil. This one catches my eye because it's a little shorter than the windrider and melges and also sounds like its fairly easy to rig and single hand.

Also, this yahoo group is nice, but why isn't there a phpbb forum that might organize topics a little easier? If you guys think a forum would help the group grow, I can help with that as I have unlimited storage and bandwidth on my host.
