Hobie getaways are quite stable and good for blast, though not overly challenging. I would prefer an older hobie 14 turbo or 16 to sail myself and sail a little closer to the edge. But for the family
, your choice of the getaway is probably perfect
I sailed a rental Getaway out of Fiji
a few years back. I couldnt really fault it too much other than lack of high speed. But I grew up on very fast cats and dinghies that were flighty, so its unfair for me to critique the getaway too much. So, yep the getaway for family sailing.
