In General Questions and Comments
A relative newbie to the Solo here. I’m perfectly able to right the dinghy after a capsize by pulling/standing on the centreboard but once the boat is upright, what’s the best way of getting back in? If I enter from the side and grab the top of the centreboard case it just falls back on top of me and capsizes again. Is it better to go back in over the transom? Obviously I’m only sailing when there’s a safety boat out at the moment, but I would prefer not to need them. The water is still a bit cold here in Scotland for too much experimentation! Any tips?
