Briefly raced on one that had been cruised to Mexico
. Quite fast especially in light air. Didn't do any open water
, downwind work in the boat but handled well in the mostly light wind
sailing we did on the boat.
The owner had added a hard dodger
, roller furling
, and electric windlass
and sailed the boat to Mexico
from SF with his girlfriend for a season. He seemed happy with the cruise
though the girlfriend was no longer in evidence. FWIW, the owner was pushing 80 so not the typical small boat cruiser.
