I have had a Wave for 3 years. It is served me well. Sturdy, easy to rig, easy to move up and down the beach single handed. But it really lacks the performance I want. I grew up sailing on 16's and it lighter wind the Wave is just plain slow. So, I am planning on upgrading to a larger boat with better performance. I sail solo about 50% of the time and with my kids / wife (usually just one at a time) the other 50%.

I think the T2 fits my needs a little better but I am a little concerned about being on the "newness" of the T2 (they modified the European design) whereas the Getaway has been around for a long time and has a proven track record. Thoughts?

The Getaway is proven, but the T2 has the sporty look and good performance you want. Both the T2 and the Getaway will be tougher to handle on a beach alone.

You'll get a LOT more attention with the T2. You can always ask one of the onlookers to help...
