Yes the boat has proved itself on the racing field, in regatta and solo racing (transquadra). It is designed more taking racing in consideration than cruising even if it will not have problem in doing that if adapted, if one is Spartan enough. If the boat as a cruising boat can be considered Spartan as a racer it is a top one.
The boat JPK has intended to fast cruising is the JPK 38. I have posted about it and I think you will find it interesting. It has many similarities with your boat (Opium 39) including a swing keel, among other configurations.
