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

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone.

So I guess I should have stated it at the start, but my budget is only about 1000-1500. I don't want to go spending a lot of money on a boat only to find out I don't enjoy it as much as I think I will. As for location, I'm in the SF Bay Area, so that would be my principal sailing location.

I know everyone keeps touting the Laser, but I know for myself I want two sails. As well, I do want to be able to go out with someone on the water, even if they don't help with the boat, and a Laser isn't going to be very comfortable for that. Lol.

But to answer you overbored, no, I haven't done any sailing on my own. Lol. However the Taser, the Viper, VX One, Hobie 16 look both manageable and capable as I get better.
