Well, I took my first sail today with my Bravo. Sure is different than the Wave. I found the Wave much more relaxing, a much more stable sail. UV factor was very high, lost my hat and had to return to base. I did get about 1 1/2 hours under my belt. I find it very difficult to come about. Good thing I had my little folding paddle. I'm hoping that I get more confident so that I can relax a bit more. Somebody once wrote that the Bravo was like a bucking bronco. Is that so ? I'm too old to be riding Broncos. Oh, Well !
And *I* was thinking the Bravo tacked SO much easier than the Wave.....LOL!! How much wind did you have? My last couple of sails have been in 8 - 10 mph winds; and it tacked smooth as silk. There's sort of a nice radius involved: too short, and the rudder kills the speed; and too large and you'll lose momentum. Find the sweet spot and it tacks like a monohull.
If you feel like you only need ONE little push to get you through the tack, you can always push the tiller back and forth to give you that last boost....
