I would'nt of thought that as you move out of a fairly low performance boat like a stratos you could jump straight into a Musto Performance Skiff as it is a very difficult boat for experts to sail well and i wouldnt of thought that the Stratos would of been a brilliant class to come from as it is a huge leap!

 

29er may be an option but, again it is still a fairly difficult boat to sail well.

what about th laser2000. it may be smaller than the stratos, but it has a better racing circiut. it is quite similar so it shouldn't be too much difficulty to adjust.

if you want a singlehander, i would recommend the laser. for one design fleet racing you ca n not beat it.

Sounds like they want to get started with trapezing, hence the choice of 29er or MPS. So best to get some trapezing experience first.

Of course I am going to recommend the Contender as the single handed option.

As far as the 2 man option lots of choices, 29er, Laser 4000, Buzz, ISO etc

Yeah i would of thought something like a Buzz or Fireball would be good (Buzz is easier than Fireball) becasue they offer some good performance and arent as hard to sail as A MPS or a 29er

racing in a stratos is quite hard cos have got the get the thing moving across the start line otherwise you will left behind!  if you can get a stratos moving you could get most things moving.

29er or Musto Skiff, I sail a Musto Skiff and don't think its to difficult for you to sail, have a go is the best way to find out.

Single or double,  

A single hander has to multi task doing most of the jobs in the boat by motor skills to allow time to focus on going fast in the right direction. trouble free sailing and if your crew gets one too its some one to train with

Double handers have to have good team skills and rely on others to do the jobs there not doing and just focus on one area. Some one to talk to and help you rig.

if you are going to be doing a lot of training ect.  get a double cos you have someone to encourage you and make you go that little bit faster.  but if you are just going to be racing a mucking around get a single.
