I recognize that "hershey" who owns a Capri 22...
I owned a Capri 22, and have sailed on a J/22... The J/22 is hands down a blast to sail... but for $10k... Buy an older Capri 22, and put the extra $5k in sails! Then you can outsail the $10k J/22 with worn out sails!
Seriously the Capri 22 is a great sailing boat.. it's NOT as fast as the J/22 but the parts are cheaper, it's cheaper to buy, cheaper to maintain, if you get the wing keel model it's easier to launch, it's easier to solo sail...
NOW - if you plan to race ONLY (probably not yet).. and you have a J/22 fleet nearby, stretch NOW for the J/22 (you'll get crew quickly).
For a starter keel boat, the Capri 22 is a slam dunk... It just is... if you race it in Handicapped fleets, it does OK as well. The BEST model Capri to find is the Fin Keel, tall rig, first generation... but it'll also be the hardest to solo sail and launch. The easiest to learn on is the Regular rig, newest generation wing keel model.
If you want to ask questions about the Capri 22, check out http://http://www.capri22.net/phpbb/
forum. No I get nothing out of the forum... and it's the class association for the Capri 22.
For the record the J/22 class association is http://www.j22.com/
