Cold, maybe in the windy city, last week temps were higher then June here !!

Hi ! How about a centerboard sailboat ? French have been building shallow draft sailboats since the 70' when a couple of famous (In France) sailors were writing extensively in French magazines about the advantages of centerboard sailboats when offshore cruising
