Can someone suggest a few good single-handed sailboats? I would like a boat with the following characteristics:
* Large enough so it can be sailed without getting wet, at least not very wet. (Wet is OK when racing.)
* Relatively fast
* Suitable for trailering (mast can be raised and lowered by one person)
I am looking at the 14.5' Finn class (which is as old as I am.) However, I am thinking that there may be some newer boats that I should also look at. The Laser, of course, is very popular - but can it pass the "dry" requirement? How about the Contender, the RS boats, or the Solo?
Since the Finn is still in the Olympics, is it still the single-handed boat to beat?
