Solo bareboat in Newport

I'm in Newport, Rhode Island, for a few days on my own and would of course like to do some sailing. I'm not an especially experienced sailor, but am not a complete neophyte either - I've done the ASA courses up to 104 and have skippered a few times on inshore waters. One thing I'd like to do which I've never tried is sail solo. Would anyone have any recommendations on a suitable boat to rent for a few hours? I'm thinking perhaps a Rhodes 19 from Sail Newport:

Does this sound feasible? In particular how easy is it to work the jib sheets from the tiller position?
