That's pretty much my thinking. Will be driven on whether a suitable boat appears...

An old grad will be nowhere near on handicap as a new rooster one with all the bells and whistles and big sails depends if you want to race handicap or race against the same class. Seem to remembering hearing that the miracle with kite up is way faster than its handicap but hey that was on this forum. Given some training and pointers you'd be flying the spinnaker in no time

Still haven't as yet...

There was a nice Miracle as mentioned in a post earlier which has gone (at a good price too). Otherwise still looking at something like a Graduate.

There's not too many simple double handed boats around which are suitable for small pond and a small crew.

So, in short, I'm still looking....

Thanks for the update. Yeah, the miracles look good, but I just don't want wood. Quite liking the look of a Comet Duo, but not many of them about either though. There's a couple of Grp grads at our club, but not tried one yet...

I have an FRP hulled wooden deck Miracle for sale at present (its on the 'duck)could be open to offers. Great combination of maintenance free hull with the great looks of a wooden boat

Boat Yard at Beer are going to be building a batch of brand new Grads in August so you could get a new one or get a good 2nd hand one from someone trading up.

Yes - that's part of the reason that I'm not rushing - see what turns up in a month or three.
