I own one since 2 years now and I ve been quite happy so far. done about 1800 miles with her. She needs 10+kts wind
to be confortable. I sail her upwind 45 degrees off the wind
, 6 knots average. She can plane downwind.
This boat is originally a bit heavy because of all the woodwork, but if you dont overload her she ll sail nice and smooth. She ll be alright also in 40+knts wind and 15+feet waves, very strongly build.
