Having learned on a 15 foot sloop, handling a Beneteau 393 seemed like a piece of cake! I'm sure many fine sailors started on larger boats, to be sure, but it seems like you develop a feel for the wind and boat interaction more directly on a smaller boat that responds quicker and more dramatically to the wind. Just my opinion from someone still very close to the beginning, with lots yet to learn.

How about Tanzer 16, vs Bucaneer 18, vs Flying Scot? All are in local club fleet.

if you have never sailed before, get in a sunfish and mess around till you get a good feel for things...then rock and roll in any of those three. Word to the wise though, bring a friend who is good at sailing. I've never been in a scott or a tanzer, but the bucc18 is a handfull.

Flying scot would be an excellent boat! Even when you get really experienced, have a fine yacht, you'll still love sailing that boat.
