tiller vs wheel

I was on a demo sail for a few hours on the J100. When sailing the boat and sitting on the coaming there wasn't anyplace to put your feet for leverage. I see this as a bit of a design flaw. Sure you could sit in the cockpit but the line of sight is so much better from the coaming. The boat did have lifelines but having your feet resting on top of the cockpit seat didn't give you any leverage, after a while my back was sore.
