Sailing a Corribee

 Ever since the age of eight, when I first read "Swallows and Amazons", I've dreamt of owning a sailing boat. Over the years I read everything I could about sailing, tried my hand in dinghies, then in hired yachts on the Norfolk Broads and other inland waters. some years ago I first bought a boat, and sailed my Mirror dinghy for a year on Lake Windermere, and then after moving to the southwest, on Plymouth Sound. In the summer of 1998 I decided to look for something bigger. So it came about that I became the proud owner of Charisma, a 21 foot bilge keeled Corribee.

I hope these web pages can become a shared resource for all who sail Corribees - if you're reading this and you sail one, please get in touch either directly or through the forum below, whether to share tips for sailing or modifiying the boat, to volunteer an account of a voyage, or just to say hello.
