Thanks for the excellent responses.
The Rio M seems like its going to be the right choice for me which was obvious at first but I had to hear it from you guys. I get juiced up reading about everyone else experiences and wanted to make sure. The reality of not being in an area that offers optimum conditions had to set in
Local conditions dictate the choice.
Can you offer some sail recommendations ? Too many choices out there make it difficult to determine.
Also my wife at 5'8" 130 lbs is chomping at the bit as well. I figured the Rio S for her.
Again thanks for the help. We are getting excited about getting involved in a watersports activity that challenges us!!
