Welcome! We have our boat in Spain
right now. Best advice is to sail, sail sail. Catch a ride with the best sailors you can go with, do a little racing
for a week.
When you are ready to buy you should think hard and realistically about how you will use your boat, weekend trips around the bay? Racing
? 2weeks to two months? Fulltime cruiser? Open water
long distance sailor?
We chose full time cruiser so high on our list was comfort, a good bed
, an easy sail plan, plenty of storage
. We have been very happy with our choice. She is not fast but the ride is a Cadillac.
