question for those who know how to sail

I have sailed sunfish, lasers, blue jays ( all 14''), Hobie Cats (16''), Rhodes 19''s, O''Day''s (22-24)'', Catalina''s (22-28''),Beneteau''s(36-40''),Privilege Cat (40''), etc. Small boats are the most FUN! Response is immediate, if unforgiving. You''ll get wet, but you''ll feel exhilerated. Larger boats are sailed with the same principles, and are more satisfying in that you can go farther and more comfortably. It is very thrilling to control a large boat and move it through the sea by your wits and the wind. Small boats can be sailed with a minimum of preparation (but DO prepare). Large boats need much prep time before slipping the mooring. Sailing BOTH are more satisfying than anything I think you can do. Have Fun!
