Small sail boats.

Postby Malkity » Thu 20 Aug 2009 21:10 GMT

Has anyone ever seen small sail boats around the Malta shores? About 11-16 feet long with a single sail. I used to have a Sunfish when I lived in the Bahamas and a 22foot sail boat in Florida. Thanks guys. Mike.

In St Paul's Bay I spotted a Drascombe Lugger

A useful 18 footer, should be excellent for coasting around Malta in the summer months
