which racing dingy to start in the ocean?

For a tough performance dinghy, you might want to try a 505 or Flying Dutchman. If you can make the 18 mile trip on Josie in 5 hours, a 505 on a reach might take two. Don;t know if a Wayfarer would be much quicker than your current ride, or how popular (read available) any of thses boats are out there.
