I believe I sed this--
" sail everything then figger out which YOU like best. Is a matter of personal taste, not popularity."
Idont care how many miles yada yada yada-- the point is that everyone sails
differently and in different kinds of seas and likes different kinds of boats-- I have sailed many kinds of sloops from 1903 kinds to modern. I PREFER to sail a ketch
..LOL and with a forestaysail, at that..LOL.....everyone sails
differently and everyone likes a different kind of boat... Sail many and see what you like and dont like---- goood luck!!
I just prefer to nothave to sail a sloop
in long range sailing. I donot like the way they behave and i prefer the way my ketch
sails in heavy weather
. Btdt many many many times.
