I suppose the differences between boats are relatively small compared with the differences between sailors. I'll bet if the three front guys in a decent club fleet swapped boats with the three at the back their positions would not change.

Winder seems to be the boat of choice. I seem to recall the P&B Solos are Winder ones fitted out by P&B, I could be wrong though.

Winder have 3 models, Mk1, Mk1a and Mk2 which give a bit of something for everyone.A guy at our club had a 1a and really couldnt get on with it so he now has a 2 which he loves.

1a is a mk1 with a new deck mould. Hull is the same.

 But are they really any better than an Ovi or BY@B?  Iím sure they make the buying experience pleasant too.

It's probably 'cos people will buy a winning boat, if you win enough you become a safe bet in the eyes of the average sailor.
