    Looking for a starter opti, where should i look???

    Same. I'm 5'11", 175 lbs and I had no problem getting in an opti with my 4 yr old. The opti is a great handling boat, my now 9 yr old can handle 20 with aplomb, and I can fold myself into a borrowed boat and sail against her from time to time, even in light air (although her 110 lb weight advantage shows off the wind). If racing holds any importance at all, the opti is the only rational choice most places. The whole 'opti parent arms race' thing is way overblown at all but the very highest levels. 90+ % or more of the kids in our area sail well used boats with well used gear, all at least second or third hand.

    Artemis?

    From the yahoo report... I think a crew member died on one of the challengers in the lead up to the 1903 cup as well.
