Wind rose 18

I have been sailing for 40 years, I started in dinghys and later a catamaran. When I was 30 I sold most of my worldly pot and purchased a 42’ Endurance which I sailed with my my wife and 2 children from Victoria BC to Hawaii and further down to the line islands about 160 nautical miles north of the equator.
Since then I have raced on a c&c 33 as well as cruised an Irwin 37 in and around the bc coast. I have recently sold the Irwin thinking it was time to look at other travel which has been fun but...... once a sailor always a sailor, it’s a curse I believe.
So..... I recently purchased a wind rose 18 swing keel sloop to hopefully curse my grandchildren with the sailing bug. I purchased this boat on a whim , though I have read some good things about her sailing characteristics, she is pretty clean and lightly used, but I am interested in anyone who may have info on rigging, sails handling characteristics or whatever because I know little about this boat

Re: Wind rose 18

Welcome Don. Not familiar with the boat, I hope someone with direct knowledge can help you. Two suggestions:
1. I think this is the manual in case you don’t have it:
2. Check this forum thread, maybe you can PM these owners to share info:

Hope it helps!

Re: Wind rose 18


I would suggest filling out your profile with boat make & model and your location, even if only approximate. Those 2 questions come up repeatedly and both show under you Username in the web view.

For all of your celestial navigation questions:
A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.
