3.) Needs to be easily sailed under main alone
4.) Needs to be easy to repair

I haven't been able to find it but I'm ideally looking for a small dinghy with main jib and spin that is able to sustain the beating of a sailing school (IE not a 420). Something that doesn't require having a jib on it to sail.

Thoughts?
Check out what the school at Mystic seaport Ct. uses. A dhow, made in rhode island I believe.
