"Best new sailboat. The Access Dinghy, a small craft navigated by joystick instead of a tiller, makes sailing as easy as playing a video game. Plus, it's virtually impossible to capsize. You sit low - making for a stable centre of gravity. The boat is light enough for a six-year-old to handle; it also can be used to reintroduce seniors and disabled people to sailing. Wharf-rats like the dinghy too, for practicing strategy and tactics in varied weather conditions..."
