You haven't said anything about your joint sailing ability, how much learning you're prepared to do, what sails at your club or budget.

I would suggest you also look at the 405 (now defunctI would guess but you might get a second hand one cheap) and might not meet your requirements or a Cherub...

well me and my brother work quite well togther,  he has his rya junior leval 3 and i am a instructor.  i was thinking about spending 5000 pounds on a boat!  the cherub sounds good but i would strugle with some of the work that you have to do on a cherub to make it competative.

You sound like you are at the same stage as my brother and I, a few years back. We grew out of the Mirror, so got the RS200. We were slightly lighter that you at 15 stone, so struggled for a couple of seasons. As it is a boat to grow into, don't dishearten. Stick with it or get your brother he eat loads of pies.
