Formula 18, Hobie Tiger or similar. Trapezing for the helm is easier then hiking on a cat so dont let that put you off.  Dont let prejudice against cats put you off a type of sailing that could keep you in the sport, there all sailboats.  Try one.

I hope this link works.  If it does you'll have to admit it - it's one hell of a good looking boat.

Looks more like an ole flying fifteen shacked up with a 70's throw back xtra inefficient genny added for effect , brought a tear to me ole salt encrusted eye , if it wasn't for me wooden legs would give one a bash ,

These new fangled wotsit skuff jobs look like pants wetters to me , I like me ole barkers in the watter , safer that way and keeps the baccy dry !

Plenty room on Dutcmen too for sandwiches and flask o tea .

Pop yur sarny in a XX er sail pocket and kiss it goodbye .
