Dinghy Cruising Association members range widely in very different boats. Some seek quiet waters, others prefer more restless seas. Some visit both.
Most of their craft meet the guidelines suggested in our Safety Recommendations. A lot of them are clearly safe, stable vessels, perhaps traditional in appearance.
Others have been designed and built to meet specific cruising needs. Many more are well-known class dinghies with a racing pedigree: these are frequently, but not always, adapted for cruising and camping.
