I would expect the Sunfish to point better, but the Bravo not handling rough seas as well has me baffled. How does the Bravo not handle rough conditions? This is the first I have heard about this. In the past have sail a Starfish which is very similar to the Sunfish, but not made any more. I took the Starfish out in lots of weather conditions, but it didn't handle ocean surf. I have read here that the Bravo can go the surf. How did rough seas affect the Bravo?
In this case, it was that the waves were very fresh, very steep, very breaking on top of the boat... And I had to travel direct into their path to be where Id hoped to end up. Also, I haven't mastered the art of tacking the bravo. seems I always have to jibe to make it about. The boat is so light that a strong headwind will stop the boat cold as it tries to cross the wind, not to mention the waves pushing back. The sf simply had more mass / momentum, and less windage. The waves if need be could pass over the sf where the bravo gets shoved around better. IMO, there is a time and place for both.
I'm sure with more mature rolling waves, all would be good.
For a 'real' surf cat. 16 or fx1...
Finally, lest I give the wrong impression... I LOVE the Bravo!
