I am currently sailing a H16. I am not into racing, but do like the speed. I spend most of my time sailing (duh) and then beaching somewhere. This was our second year sailing and a little to our dismay we really felt like the H16 was a bit "small" for us (tramp size etc). Our combined weight is 300 lbs.
I had considered upgrading to a H18 or maybe a Nacra (sorry I said it). I have found a 21 SE with a spin for sale. According to SCHRS ( Small Catamaran Handicap Rating System ) http://www.schrs.com/index.php
the Hobie 21SE should be faster than the Hobie 16, Hobie 18, Formula 18 and even the Nacra 18^2....is that correct???
Also is righting this thing difficult?
Can you sail without the wings?
