Re: 30 vs 33

The 30 Mark I well earns its reputation as the stiffest C&C design. My personal experience racing the 30 Mark I, was that in 18 knots of beeze or more, the 30 Mark I performed well above its rating, and we would frequently beat many of the bigger boats that started 10 minutes ahead of us across the finish line. The magic of the design is that it also sailed to its rating from 6 and up...

That said, the 33 Mark I does have sexier look and is a sweet boat in any regards.

Certified...in several regards...
