Re: New sailor looking for HR46

Bona,

That's a lot of boat for a new sailor. Regardless of how deep your pockets are, it makes good sense to shoot a little smaller for a first boat. I suggest something in the 20 foot range. Less likely to turtle than a dinghy but still tender enough to scare you into your senses as you learn to feel the wind and the boat interact.
