Dingy sailing is the most responsive type of sailing as the vessel is so light you get instant feedback from your actions.
You will very quickly understand the effects of the wind and your actions due to the size of the craft. Take to the water and explore the Kenmare bay with many attractions to see such as seals, dolphins, lots of different species of birds, castles and much more with the wind in your sails there is endless options and destinations.
