The ODay will give you better options on overnighting than the others.. and still be small enough to be responsive and a good learning platform.

If you feel strongly that this is for you, getting the Oday may simply let you avoid the first 'immediate' step-up after a season in a dinghy. The cruisability of the Oday over the daysailers will add to the experience.

The Hobie will provide a lot more rushes but will be somewhat more difficult to maneuver.
