Re: Good starting boat with some speed, but forgiving while learning as well?

Actually I was thinking a Viper, or if you want to stay in the 20' range the VX one. Both are great boats, and honestly the VX is pretty accessible for learning, but is also capable of 20+kn speeds when sailed to its limit.

It would help knowing where you are, since you may have a local class. But don't overlook the laser, they can be rocket ship fast when sailed well.
