The Boat

DreamCatcher is a Hunter Passage 42.

You'll be comfortable aboard, as you can see from this diagram of her layout and photos of her interior.

 

You may wonder about learning how to sail on what many people consider a big boat, but there is an advantage to beginning with a (relatively) big boat.  Although she will react to your touch on the wheel and sail control lines (called "sheets"), she will have enough momentum to react smoothly.  She'll give you a chance to "adjust your adjustments" and absorb knowledge about boat handling.  In contrast, when learning on a small dinghy, small adjustments can bring big changes, often too quickly - for beginners - to feel what's going on before the boat tosses them into the water!
