Looking for a Dinghy
So I've sailed Sunfishes a few times and I'm wanting to get my own boat and upgrade a little bit from a catboat.
I'm looking for a dinghy with a jib for <$1200, preferably monohull as I'd still be considered a "novice".
Also, general comments on jib sailing versus catboats. Big performance difference? How much more complicated to sail? Anything else I shoudl know about?
Edit: I'm supposing gen/spinnakers are generally too complicated for single-handed sailing, yes? And likely too expensive for me too.
