The Dinghy Cruising Association will be exhibiting two wonderful cruising dinghies at the upcoming RYA Dinghy and Watersports Show.

Mary Dooley's Mirror dinghy has been seen at the Dinghy Show before and has generated lots of astonishment that a humble Mirror dinghy can support someone for a blissful few days of camping cruising.

Mary will be there in person again to show how she does it - and keeps smiling.

Also on the stand will be an even more surprising cruising dinghy.

Alastair Law's self-built Paradox 'Little Jim' is under 14 foot long and four foot wide.

She's flat bottomed with no centreboard and many people wonder if she'll even sail, let alone whizz across the bay keeping Alastair snug as a bug inside.

Alastair will also be on hand to explain Microcruising as a concept.
