Hello! I'm not someone who has every sailed before. I've recently become interested in learning, and luckily enough for me my mother sailed for a good 20 years, and has offered to teach me if I buy a boat. I'm a complete novice here, and have no idea what to look for boat wise. I'm after a 1-2 man small boat that can be strapped to the top of a car. Preferably something that's good for learners/beginners. In order for my mother to teach me, we need to be able to fit the both of us on, however I'm equally as interested in getting something that I will be able to sail singlehandedly once I'm confident/proficient enough. I've had two suggestions so far- a laser pico and a topped dinghy. I was wondering if anyone might mind sparing 5 minutes to give me their opinion on the two, or suggest any others they feel may be suitable. Any advice would be much appreciated! thank you in advance.
