160kg is a smidge over 25 stone, so too big for Ents and Larks and probably too big for a GP.  A Kestrel or Albacore would be a better bet from those already mentioned IMO.

Osprey? And due to the introduction of the new MKV there will probably be a number of older boats on the market as owners 'trade up'.

A GP? WTF? Here they are a dynamic couple used to flying a spinnaker in a force five, what the hell do they want a clapped out junk pile like a GP or any of that other dross mentioned above, for all it's faults, plastic, heavy the Xenon is at least from this century.

Now they also appear to be in Kent, so should shoot over to Wilsonian and try and get a go in a proper boat that will be both easier to sail and more exciting.

A GP? FFS neal you need help, I think I'm going to have to have a word with your Mrs, see if she can't get some herbal medication to see if that helps...

Your combination perfect for an Osprey, just right weight and distribution. Fast boat, but well mannered, perfect for learning to trapeze. Yes there are now Mark 4s (those are recent GRP/ FRP boats) going on market as Alastair says above. PM if you'd like more info. Class info on www.ospreysailing.org. Good national and regional racing circuits. Growing fleet with lots people buying the latest Mark 5 version, just launched.

400 all the way!
Very forgiving and great for large crews
The main is only loaded in a F2-3 and even then it is not heavy, I've seen plenty of women helm them and do very well! Theres a great purchase on the mainsheet system and kicker....they do all the work
