I am currently sailing one across the Pacific and have traveled 6000 miles so far. All two or one handed sailing.
The crux is this boat
has very good sailing behaviour, in fact she is quite fast BUT you need more than 16knots of wind
because the sail area is to small for a 27 yes 27 ton boat.
Of course all the windows and fixtures leak but she is a leaky teaky after all!
In 20 knots of wind
I can passage
plan at 150 miles per 24 hours.
