British moth is probably the classic river singlehander, esp for lightweights, and is not at all like the inrernational. Although its small and low freeboard I really wouldn't describe it as wet.

The boat in the foreground is for sale on apollo duck at the moment.
It's a great boat, but wood. Not many glass ones about.
If your after a glass boat, might be easier to look for a lightning or a comet.

The Rooster graduate is not being made any more.  Though you can buy wooden version of the Graduate dinghy it can not really compete with the Rooster version which is FRP.    So not raelly a fair class should be more like the National 12 with each version of the boat a different PY but it isn't that's why older graduates don't really do well over the roosters.

Nobody has mentioned the Lark yet it was the student boat of choice for many years and is faster than the Firefly. A Parker or Rondar version would be inexpensive, the class encourages youth sailing and it sounds like it would suit.
