The Olson 30 is best suited to sailing in SF Bay conditions. The Hobie 33 is a downwind racer, not really designed for the upwind work you would find yourself doing. The Capri 30 is really too tender for the typically windy conditions found on the Bay (although they are winners in 'round-the-bouy racing on the Estuary.) Take a look around. There are many more Olson 30s in the marinas here than there are either Hobie 33s or Capri 30s. There's a reason for that.
