Re: Lightnings vs Scots vs Snark vs Sunfish
If you want a boat easy to single hand, go with the sunfish.
Lightnings and the scots are fun but above 12 kts of wind will be a handful singlehanded.
That said, if it were me, I'd learn how to singlehand the lightening and make a sailing friend for those days that I'd like to try setting my hair on fire.
Getting a dinghy planing is a fantabulous adventure.
