Glider for heavy Pilot

Tha Caproni Calif A21S will do that. No limits on the belts, just a max total cockpit load (typically around 400 lb). As it is a side-by-side, CoG is not an issue.

GOAT ASW20

Upon spin entry with a flapped glider, you should always put the flaps to full negative. That reduces the appearent angle of attack and speeds up the recovery.

First glider Nimbus 2 ?

At the clubs I have flown so far, the club or CFI have no say about what private glider a club member buys or flies. There is some counselling, though..

First glider Nimbus 2 ?

When the water is dumped, the N2 is a very light ship (it's all about kg/m2, not about span or total mass) and will outclimb any 15 m ship.

You've got your units pretty much messed up, and when you correct for that, your calculation doesn't make any sense.
