Hi All,
Anyone have any experience with the Bravo?
I am looking to buy a small boat for me and my kids (6 and 9 yrs) to get them started into sailing. The design looks quite good. The lakes in Southern Alberta are small.

I love the boat! I have had it out in light wind, medium wind, and Big wind. We had it out in the gulf when out sea breeze kicked in this summer with about 6 foot sea's, it handled it like a champ. It was blowing about 25! In lighter winds I think it would perform better with the boom, however with kids it may be perfectly fine without. All of the ones I have sold have been to familles with small children. I do not think there is a more versatile boat out there, I sell everything and I always steer someone towards the Bravo! If it can last a summer on the beach with my crew playing with it, your kids will have a hard time breaking anything!
