Do you usually sail by yourself? If so, a Laser is a good choice. If you bring a friend or friends and maybe a pic-nic, the much larger O'Day is a great choice as is the Wayfarer also copied as a Mistral, CL 16 etc. Having raced a Finn for years, I also agree it is NOT a good starter boat. If you are looking for something with a better turn of speed a 420 or 470 would also do nicely.

Regards,

Bob
