Reply To: which rig
Thanks for reply.
Fair points. Currently sailing a firefly at club level. Have sailed on and off for some time but not done any circuit sailing for years. Sailed many different boats in the past mostly crewing hiking boats. Not particularly fit and strong came out of a laser a few years ago due to some health probs. Good leverage at 6ft. I like to race as hard as i’m able. Currently sail inland but would try to do some opens and nationals if able.
Although there is one OK at our club i would be sailing in the handicap fleet which is what i do with the firefly. Quite shifty on our pond so like to be able to feel the rig and power up/down accordingly. Not sailed with a traveller before so understand technique different.
Budget wise i’ll be looking for GRP preferably and go for best i can afford, likely to be under £2000 though.
Very undecided as to what to get but my 9yr old crew is gaining interest in her oppie and my 5yr old not suitable for cold and windy weather!
Any input gratefully received.
