All sounds good advice ! I reckon i wont move into the 4.7 as its too similar to a topper but ith smaller fleets, but the radial sounds good- i just hope all the training funding doesnt go to womens olympic training lol!!

420 is the most naturall progression i'd say. Or 29er to be more adventerous. it all depends on you and your crews weight (if you want to sail double handed with the same crew.

You should paralle sail your mirror with the new class for the first year to introduce yourself slowely.

That's what i've been advised from Zone Squad coaches. Talk to your HPM

Find a crew (I agree for a 420) who has parents who will take you!!!

Hi Littlelew, you'll get most out of racing if you have competition so what do they race at your club?

It sounds like you need a big crew.  Seriously it must be an advantage to have a light helm if the crew is heavy.  Try an older Merlin (or a newer one if you can afford it).
