My First Dinghy Trip


Yesterday I went on our dinghy for the first time and I even got to drive it. I was very happy that I got to drive the dinghy, but I was also nervous. Our friend, Caren, was the person that taught us to drive the dinghy. We went onto San Diego Bay and went full speed. When we went back home, I jumped onto our catamaran and caught the dinghy. I had so much fun!

Glossary:
Catamaran: double-hulled boat
Dinghy: small blown up boat with 8 hp motor

  1. If you knew how fast you were going and how long your trip was, you could find the distance traveled. Just trying to think of how to turn this into a math problem! Glad you had fun.

  2. I love a good dingy ride....maybe you could use the dingy to go fishing!

    Can you put a picture of your dingy online so we can see what it looks like?

    Does it have a wheel or tiller?

    Do you have to pull start it or turn the key?
