J22 or J24?

Thread starter #1
I currently sail a J22 for recreational sailing only (not a racer) out of Jamestown, RI. I am considering upgrading to the J24 for additional cabin and deck space. Is the J24 as easy to sail as the J22? I sail alone often with only the mainsail, is the J24 as easy to do that with as the 22?

Yes you can sail the 24 with the mail alone. I've rigged my 22 for single handed sailing with the main and blade. This fine for light going during evening races. When the wind builds you'll want some crew weight.
