Me and my mate are saving for a 29er but currently sail a Fireball when its under F4 and Topper's over that.......Do you think that we would cope in a 29er after coming from a Fireball

 

By the way im not trying to change the topic just a question soz...

Yeh I think you could probably cope pretty well in a 29er - though you would definetly want to sail it in over a F4 as thats when the fun begins!!

Yeah i no it looks amazing but in the fireball i find on a screaming reach with the spinni up force 4 no probs no capsise but in a F5+ we cpasise a few times and end up either loosing the race or last time becoming so exhausted from falling in cold water repeatedly that we couldnt right the boat and had to call for assistance from the Rescue Boat ....a bit unpleasant

which ever boat he ends up choosing i would strongly suggest he goes double handed as its more fun and on distance races he would have some one to talk to. plus when you achive something you have some one to share it with. 
no fear

wave rider youll cope wiv a 29er fine! there not as hard as there made out to be, and after a fire ball you should have some good skills! but BIG tip if your used to haveing the main sheet from the floor putit there! in alot of skiffs the sheet goes from the end of the boom to the horse, back to the end of the boom, to the middle of the boom, then to the floor then back to the middle of the boom! when i first bought mine, i had it top sheeted and found it easy enough, but then when people at the club started sailing it they where all complaining that it was too hard!
Your spinni aint as big as your mouth!

If you have a go in the musto and it is to hard try a votex but to be onest if you sailed a strutos don't you think that theas kind of boats are to hard why don't you try somthing like a laser 1 or if you want a 2 man boat you can try somthing  laser 3000 you sould learn this kind of sailing be for you get one of the fast ones because all you will do is capzis and you will put your self off sailing

Hi 5420.  Just a quick question.  Do you ever feel faint or suddenly blackout when you are talking?
