When the wind is up - force 4-7, the sixteen, with or
without kite is unbeatable. A reach on these is just the

Newer boats come into their own in the light winds
Force 1-3, where the sixteen isn't so exciting, especially
off the wind. Any boat is good however in one design

getting on.
In a real blast, i would always go for the sixteen, but find
them interminably boting in a Force 1-2 where other
boats can start flying hulls and wiring long before the
