Wow what fun. Compared to my Sailfish you can just relax and concentrate on proper sail angle, and the scenery. So much more room, you can even sail lying down. The wind was running 10-15 mph. Even my wife who is tip-over phobic sailed it and had a good time. :?

Forgot to put the halyard on before stepping the sail, otherwise pretty easy rigging.

I am so happy I bought this boat :P !

Welcome to the club! You'll really enjoy your boat, solo or with passengers.

10-15 winds are really fun. 15-20 are great too, especially with two on board. Some folks say there's no upper wind limit on a Wave, but you'll have to figure out for yourself what you're comfortable with. Just shift your weight back as the leeward bow starts to dive. And if it does start to pitch-pole, just hang on; it will pop back up on its own.

What a great boat! I had my maiden voyage today, 10-15 knot winds and top boat speed 10.4 knots, even got the hull out of the water a couple of times. Can't wait for 15-20 knots. 8)
