Anyone have one of these?
Any racing here?
I want a pair of matched yachts to take cruising with me. In a perfect world that would be a pair of wind warriors, but they are too pricey.

Choosing a boat based on resale value is a bit like picking a girlfriend based on how desirable other guys might find her after you break up.

RPNYC have 7 of them (to ensure 6 can sail at any one time)
easy as to sail, apparently a bit of mucking around to get set up the first time. they like flat water (suspect most of the small boats do, on opening day (25 ish knots on the harbour) within the confines of Clyde Quay they were nose diving a little,
It looks like a single bolt to get the keel out and rig seems simple.
at that price its hard to go wrong...
