I am a newbie, I have a Kyosho Fairwind Purchased In Japan and have been sailing for a year,

I Want to purchase a Fortune 612 or a Northwind 28. As a second boat.

What are these like.

Your comments are most welcome.

Bye for now

The Fortune is a little more of a toy, in my opinion. It's NOT a toy like the Sunrise, but it's a small boat. In a good breeze it's very fast. It's maneuverable, etc. But going from a Fairwind to a smaller boat might be a little disappointing, depending on where you sail. How's that for a slightly noncommittal answer?
