The Capri 14.2 is an excellent example of a small family day sailor that is easy to handle and fun to sail. These popular boats can carry up to 3 adults or be sailed single handed. If you're looking to get into sailing this is a great first boat. You can even use these boats in racing (Portsmouth 99.4), this boat competed on the Texas Centerboard Circuit last year.
Clear Lake Sailing Club offers small boat sailing lessons every Spring and Summer. Check out their website for classes in 2012.
