Jack,

What wind range (typical conditions) will you want to use the 121?

At 11 knots, you may be able to pump it up on plane with an 8.4, but you will be right on the edge. If you stay on your 144 up to 15 knots, then I would guess you would want the 121 to work in 13 to 20 knots. Over 20 and you will be in for a bumpy ride.

Will you stay with the 8.4 on the 122 or do you have smaller sails? A 7.5 would be great in 15-20 knots.

The 144 is really made for sails larger than the 8.4 where the 121 works best with sails from 7.0 - 9.0.

I think the 122 will be a good fit, but if you are in winds in the 15 to 20+ knot range often, then the 111 or (2011 - 107) would be a better choice. I am guessing that the 122 may be your only option?
