I like the Fairwind. When I built a fleet of them for the local real yacht club I followed the Bakersfield guide. They had a lot of good (and easy) updates to make the boat more tunable. One of the easiest is swapping out the jib boom fittings for grommets. I re-used the cleat for the new dead end on the jib sheet and the loop fitting to hold the new backstay location on the transom.
