I've been sailing smaller sailboats since I was 8 years old (optis, 420s, lasers, bytes and 29ers). I'm looking into getting myself a 20-30 ft keelboat . I am hoping to spend $10 000 - $12 000 perhaps up to $15 000 provided I find a really nice boat. I'm still interested in racing
and would like a relatively fast boat (I know that isn't necessarily possible on my budget). I have to keep in mind I am a student. I was wondering if anybody had any advice on boats to look into. I know that the classic j24 is a decent race
boat however I hear it typically doesnt move to quick... I may have been wrongly informed.
I'm going to university in Kingston Ontario
so any type of boat on the great lakes
is a possibility and my home is in Nova Scotia
so any boat there is also fair game
Any advice is welcome. Everybody has to start somewhere I figure this is the best place for me.
