How to sail a dinghy. The best way to get a feel for sailing.

How to sail a dinghy. The best way to learn to sail is to start out in a small sailing dinghy. Learning how to sail a dinghy lets you feel what the wind is doing through the movement of the boat, through the tiller and through the sheets that connect to the sails. The bigger the boat, the less feel you get through the control surfaces. Once you learn how to sail in a dinghy, you can progress to bigger boats, taking with you a strong sense of feel for the wind and how the boat is responding.

** The Tiwal story **

* The Birth of Tiwal *
As a girl, the first time our founder Marion Excoffon was told, “No!” by her father when she asked to use the family boat, her life as an inventor began. It was then she started dreaming of building her own craft, an ambitious feat that would come true years later.

On the road to creating an innovative high-speed vessel for everyone from kids and first timers to expert sailors who want to test limits, there were a number of prototypes, failures, challenges and headaches. But, if there’s one thing Marion’s known for, it’s her sailor’s grit!

* Combining Fun & Technology *
The award winning Tiwal concept is easy assembly and storage - maximum fun and performance for watersports and activities. A Tiwal isn’t your average dinghy! Our design is the result of tons of coordination, talent, and technological savvy.

* A Growing Global Community *
For our community of Tiwal skippers (more than 800 worldwide!) all this innovative design means their focus is fixed on the pleasures of watersports and having tons of fun on a responsive sailing craft. With excellent upwind and downwind abilities combined with high-speeds, Tiwals are a part of both fun and professional performance.

Phantom Dinghy Sailing 28th July 2013 Matt Botfield

A very windy afternoon, the forecast was for 12 knots gusting 20 knots which on the Beaufort scale is a fresh breeze force 5. I think that the wind strength was bit higher and felt more like a force 6.

I really like sailing the Phantom and I am interested to learn and share these fun sailing days recorded using a Contour +2 helmet camera, which my Mum and Dad gave me for Christmas :) I am curious about what the Phantom's top speed could be, is there a known speed limit in the hull's design, a top speed that the boat just will not go beyond similar to the physics of a displacement hull?

I have found it very difficult to exceed 14 knots. For short 'micro' moments today I managed 14.7 knots,(but that might be me turning my head as well) but I think this may be now quite close to the hull's design limit, what do you think? Perhaps there is still some more speed to be found though from a newer built Phantom. In this video, you'll see a large fountain of water shooting up through of the hull. Back on shore, I discovered that one half of the center board gasket had broken off.

I have recorded a couple of other videos of me sailing this orange Phantom on You Tube and 14 knots has been very difficult to reach. 12 knots seems to be the speed that I can sail at more consistently in a strong breeze. Although the newer Phantoms look like they may go a bit faster.

I think the advent of GPS technology is just great and now with the ability to overlay speed on to video, this fairly new technology will overtime will enable us sailors to record boat speeds over a variety of wind conditions in all types of boats.

What do you think is the Phantom's top speed?

A curious question, which I realize is not of any real importance to the sailors who love the pleasure and enjoyment of sailing this really great boat.
