Re: New sailing j-22 to a Hobie wave
My opinion...the sunfish sails more like a real boat. And it will go in the direction you want it to, within reason.
The Hobie is faster downwind or on a reach, but God help you if you have to go against the wind- then they are awful. I can never really get them to tack or go upwind. But they do have more room.
